Why Hike Cataract Lake
This scenic hike climbs steeply up Cataract Gulch to a pretty lake basin just below the Continental Divide. Along the way the trail ascends through dense woods, passes numerous cascades and waterfalls along Cataract Creek and traverses lovely alpine meadows. A potential off-trail connection to Cuba Gulch extends the trip into an overnight backpack.
