Cathedral Lake Hiking
The hike to Cathedral Lake is ideal for the fitness-minded outdoor explorer. The 2,000-foot, 2.8-mile climb (5.6 miles roundtrip) is considered challenging, but the rewards from the high-alpine lake is worth every drop of sweat equity. The first leg of the hike climbs for .75 miles through a magical aspen forest before it enters the Maroon-Snowmass Wilderness. Soon after entering Wilderness land, the trail becomes steeper as it snakes alongside the cascading Pine Creek.
