Healy Pass and Egypt Lake

Healy Pass is a mega-classic Fall run. Once the larches start turning, the entire valley lights up in amazing shades of orange and yellow and the area becomes a very crowded place. However, Healy Pass is a great option all Summer long if you are looking for moderate elevation gain, awesome views and a great day out enjoying some of the nicest alpine meadows the Rockies have to offer. Expect a well-traveled trail all the way to Healy Pass that allows for fast travel over classic hiking terrain.
