Fun but moderately difficult hike up. Probably not something I’d recommend for visitors to Fort Collins because of the drive and elevation. But, fun and not busy. On a Sunday afternoon we passed maybe 12 people on the trail and were the last ones on the mountain. Long walk down an old Jeep trail to Cirque Meadows. Not a lot of signage and we frequently looked around for where to go finding cairns to point the way. Lots of elevation once you pass the line into the Comanche Peak Wilderness! - Picture of Emmaline Lake Trail, Fort Collins

Many Cairns were found along the way to direct us to the lake.  We left one on our way back.
