The popular Fern Lake Trail is a path that runs over 4.8 miles (7.7 kilometers) through the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. An expedition to this lake and trail is a superb way to escape the suburban sprawl of Estes Park, Longmont and Boulder. Despite the steep elevation, the first couple of miles are comparatively simple and flat. The trail also provides great opportunities for swimming and skiing apart from hiking. If you're lucky, you may catch elk herds often grazing across the expansive meadows, a sight that only adds to the trail's natural beauty.

Even though the Calypso Cascades hiking trail is located within Rocky Mountain National Park it is far enough away from the main entrances so as to avoid the plagues of people that can ruin a hike. This 1.8-mile jaunt is moderate, with an elevation gain of 700 feet. It follows alongside the gin-clear waters of St. Vrain Creek and provides a good stop-off point, with plenty of picture opportunities, at Copeland Falls. The trail then continues gradually upwards through dense forests of aspens, firs, and pine before reaching the Calypso Cascades. From Longmont, head west on Highway 7. About two miles past Allenspark turn left at the big sign marked Wild Basin. At the Wild Basin Lodge turn right on to a dirt road and follow it for two miles to Wild Basin Ranger station. Signs leading to the trail head are well marked.
