Last weekend, Molly, our 8 year-old lab mix, and I hiked to Nolan Lake south of Fulford outside of Eagle, Colorado. The lake sits about 11,250 ft.
This is a little early to make this hike but with the low snow winter we had the trail was nearly free of snow. We made it to the lake in a little over an hour but we pushed hard.
The lake was spectacular and views down valley beautiful. I highly recommend this hike to anyone wanting to make a relatively moderate hike to a high alpine lake.
