Hike to Lake Haiyaha

Lake Haiyaha is a popular destination, surrounded by large boulders
and set in Chaos Canyon between Hallett and Otis Peaks. Total round trip distance is approximately 4 miles and is not considered strenuous although we will be at 10,500'. Total climb is 750'. There are also opportunities to go a short distance to several other lakes (dream lake & nymph lake) along the same trail.

The focus will be landscapes in winter to catch snow in the backdrop mountains and surrounding areas. I am planning on scouting this hike in the next 2 weeks. Date may change due to snow conditions. Car pooling will be required and will be looking for drivers who have a yearly park pass as there is an $20.00 entrance fee per car.

    The Westminster park and ride has a lot on both the west and east side of hwy 36. The east side is where the garage is and is the more logical choice for anyone going west from denver to boulder. Unless I hear otherwise I will assume the east side.

    I also have room for riders and a pass...if no-one asks for a ride I will bi-pass the park and ride and go straight to bear lake.
