Hike Summary: I hiked this section with BirdShooter in the southwestern corner of Rocky Mountain National Park near Grand Lake. We spent three days hiking past meadows and trout streams along the North Inlet Trail to the Porcupine backcountry campsite. Two alpine lakes, Lake Nanita and Lake Nokoni are not far from this area. Most campsites along this route allowed fires at the time, which was a major plus. Overnight temperatures were well into the 20's during our hike in October.
