MOUNT PRINCETON HOT SPRINGS RESORT
UPPER & LOWER STOUT LAKES.
This is a fairly difficult hike over five miles (one way) and exceeds 3,000 vertical feet. The lower lake has the larger cutthroats where grasshopper and ant patterns have been very productive. The upper lake is a 15-20 minute hike and sits just under Twin Sisters Peaks (12,687 ft) which are located West of the lakes. The lakes are above timberline and weather must be monitored. The trails into these lakes are predominately climbers trails (virtually straight up) so more difficult to climb than most. The upper lake sits in a cirque below Twin Sisters Peaks. Coyotes are abundant around the upper lake so if you have furry friends keep a watchful eye on them. The county roads and trailhead information can be found in a guidebook “Central Colorado Alpine Lakes“.
