What's in a Name?

The Zirkel Circle loop is the go-to Mount Zirkel Winderness hike for those wanting to experience a great hike, picturesque views, and a taste of alpine lake skinny dipping. From Slavonia trailhead, the loop can be taken either way: to Gold Creek Lake first, or to Gilpin Lake first. Either way is beautiful. And for the ultra runners, this makes a perfect day-long trail run.
