Gold Cord Lake Trail

Gold Cord Lake trail is a moderate trail, fairly easy for kids. A little bit of warning, we did hike this one time with someone who doesn't like heights and she suffered a bit of vertigo on parts of the trail. She still made it to the end okay but it's something to think about if someone in your party isn't a fan of heights. The trail starts from the upper parking lot at the Independence Mine. The trailhead is marked and the trail is well-defined. There is some parts that go over a boulder field but someone has come in and made "stairs" from the rocks so it's not a scramble. The lake is a gorgeous shade of turquoise and we saw several people who brought blow up rafts to paddle around the lake on.
