Deluge Lake Trail

Deluge Lake is one of my favorite spots in the Gore Range. The first half of this trail however, is not my favorite. Beginning near the campground at the end of Bighorn Road in East Vail, the trail climbs relentlessly without a break for about two miles — a good two hours. Along that stretch there are a few openings like this with views of upper Gore Creek Valley, but most of the trail is in dense forests of aspen and conifer.
