“Herman Lake Trail leads to great lines and views on the divide.”— Britton Thomas
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.
