Andrew’s Glacier Hike

July 28, 2017

To date, this was probably my favorite hike that I’ve done in Colorado. Which, I know, is saying a lot. I think it also surprised me a bit, as I didn’t expect this to be so diverse, challenging, and for so many different sights on a route very close to where I’ve been before.

In July of 2017, some friends and I set out to hike Andrew’s Glacier. We took the commonly traveled Bear Lake trailhead up to Hallet Peak. From there, we went on the backside to reach Andrew’s Glacier. I can’t be too descriptive of the exact route at this point, but I’m sure to hike it again with more detailed photos and routes.
