Chasm Lake Trail (~8.3 miles round trip). Longs Peak Trailhead. RMNP (1.5 hours / 76 miles from Denver)
In short, we didn’t make it to the lake. We made it about 2.4 miles in and turned around right after breaking past tree line. The temperature dropped and winds made it nearly impossible to walk even with traction and trekking poles. We’ll come back and finish it over the summer.
Let’s just say it was entirely too cold for this hike.
And this where we turned around.
