Challenging hike, but worth it. Would recommend starting off by 10am. Don't be intimidated by the Circle Pass. It is not as difficult as it looks.

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.
