Sun, 7 July - Three Island Lake and the Sierra Madre
Took the Three Island Lake Alternate which is claimed to be more scenic - ran along a pretty ridge then followed a stream from the lake with many small waterfalls. Met several groups of horse riders out for the day.
Came to detour sign advising hikers to take a road to avoid a bridge that was out. Of course I didn't take it and forded the river. Who needs bridges?
The afternoon section was on multiuse trails and had a few ATVs and dirt bikes but was in good shape and was a pleasant hike. Last day in Colorado. Camping just under six miles from the border.
