You could hike up to Crystal Lakes. The hike is on an old 4x4 road, and it's really pretty when you get above the trees. There is considerable avalanche danger in the upper basin, but if you stay on the road and don't hike too high, you should be fine.

From Hoosier Pass, south of Breckenridge on Colorado 9, go 7.6 miles north to the well-marked Spruce Creek Road. Turn onto the Spruce Creek Road, and follow it for approximately 2 miles to an obvious parking area. Hike up the old road as far as you like.

Return to Colorado
