I'm heading up to Big Creek lakes in a couple of weeks. I plan on going to the upper lake and also to big creek falls, but i want to use my boat to get to the inlet and cut off about a mile of the hike. Does anyone know if it is possible to find the trail/ the way to the upper lake? I picked up the book Colorado's Incredible Back Country Trails, so i think its possible, but i can't be too sure that it is. Thanks for any advice.
Only been there once but I think if you just follow the road towards the right till it ends theres a pay parkin lot with the trail rite there just watch the signs?? Maybe someone else with better info for ya

If you go to the inlet you can follow the creek to upper big creek. It's real easy and the trail is right along side the creek you can't miss it. We always stay to the right of the creek but at the start its tuff to get over some logs. Then it's about a half mile to the top lake, good luck!
I figured the pic was from last year, I don't think there will be that much water this year but i'm hoping the fishing is good as well. i'll be there 22nd for few days, Ice fishing was great this past winter iced the BC four times and released several very respectful fish.
This will be my 4th visit to Big Creek Lakes, the previous 3 times the water has been crazy high, with lots of marshes and flooding, never seen it "low". it will be my first time to the upper lake. I'll be up there the weekend of the 16, hoping for good weather and good fishing
