Hike to Fern Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park, Episode Two
Looking for a bit more strenuous hike, allowing to set your eyes on even more brilliant scenic lakes surrounded by Fall aspens and wildflowers galore, the Fern Lake Trail is a must. Fern Lake Trailhead is at the back of Moraine Park and the being of Thompson River Canyon. First one point seven miles is fairly flat and easy as you hike along Big Thompson River. At this point your reach The Pool and the junction to do a loop hike up and over to Cub Lake and back to Fern Lake Trailhead. Fern Lake Trail stays to the right with a steep climb heading up to Fern Falls. The seven tenths of a mile hike you gain an elevation of four hundred feet to the falls.
As you are hiking up to Fern Falls you will pass the two primitive campsites and and a side trail that offers great views into the Thompson River Canyon. The next mile past Fern Falls you gain six hundred and fifty feet in elevation. At three miles and seven tenths you reach Spruce Lake Trail. Another one-tenth of a mile you arrive at Fern Lake. Incredible setting with the trail continuing to other park destinations in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Tough enough to climb 50 plus 14er’s, backpack the 500 plus miles of the Colorado Trail or any other wilderness area, wading a river to gently placing a fly in front of a rising trout.
