Twin Lakes

Hope Pass Trail

This trailhead is shared with Big Willis Gulch, two miles west of Twin Lakes Village on Highway 82. Hope Pass is also the Colorado Trial that passes over to the Clear Creek Road. There is about 3,200 feet elevation gain up to 12,500 feet, so it offers extraordinary views. Visitors should plan on a full day of hiking. This is a popular trail run, as it is the "crux" of the infamous Leadville Trail 100 foot race!

Directions

The trailhead can be found two miles west of Twin Lakes Village on Highway 82. Look for a parking lot to the left (south) of the road. The trail is accessed south across the bridge over Lake Creek. Follow the road to the trail on the right side.
