Roundtrip Length: 4 mi Difficulty: Moderate
We are so lucky to have Gem Lake so close to town. I often joke that this short steep jaunt up to this lake has a difficulty level that is relative because if you just came from sea-level, it is relatively difficult. It is also relative because this is where locals send their relatives. With great views of town and the high peaks, I often escape my daily duties and take this quick round trip before anyone knows I was gone. (Maybe they know but just don’t care).
