Herman Lake Trail leads to great lines and views on the divide.

Britton Thomas

Description

Skiing in on the Herman Lake Trail takes you to the continental divide and fun ski lines of all types.

Use Exit 218 off I-70 just before Loveland Pass if you're heading west. A large parking lot gives you access to the trailhead.

Follow the Herman Lake Trail toward Herman Lake for several miles (there is a left turn at a trail junction within the first 1/2 mile.) Then when the trail takes a right and heads steeply uphill toward the lake continue straight up the drainage (near the creek) to access ski lines off the Citadel and surrounding peaks.
