Worth the long hike. It took us 7 hours to complete the Zirkel circle and we took many, many breaks. Several groups past us and completed faster. Loved the views and would do it again!

We have a home in Steamboat Springs and continue to be amazed by the great views, hikes, wildlife, and wild flowers in The Zirkels. There are lots of trails to hike, unlimited spots to camp, and beautiful lakes to fish.

We drove the 30 or so miles out of Steamboat to reach the Slovonia Trailhead which takes you to the Gold Creek Lake Trail 1150. We didn't get as far up the trail as we wanted due to snowy areas and raging river waters too...More

It's pretty rugged and rustic so I'm thinking that it's not.
