|Here are three 360 degree panoramas from Pitkin Lake Trail which climbs 3000 feet into the Eagles Nest Wilderness. The trail begins near the East Vail I-70 exit 180 and ends at Pitkin Lake, high in the Gore Range. Pitkin Creek flows out of Pitkin Lake and eventually joins Gore Creek in East Vail where the trail begins. These panorama photos were taken in mid July.
