    CO > Eagles Nest / Holy Cross > Recommendations

    Afternoon fellow hangers!
    So I currently live in the Denver area, and Iíve got a few weeks here before starting a new job (Oct 15th). Iíd really like to squeeze another good backpacking trip in, before I start working (and winter comes).

    Iíve already got all the gear I would need down to say 20į or so, as well as some snow gear if needed.

    Iíd really like to go out to the Holy Cross, or Eagles Nest Wilderness areas, up between Silverthorne & Steamboat Springs.

    Iím comfortable going solo, assuming thereís water, and looking for anything 3-nights or less.

    Also I would much prefer a loop, to an out-n-back. Views, vistas, water-features, etc; are all nice to have, but not necessarily.

    Any recommendations?
