  • Great place to visit while you're at RMNP
  • Beautiful spot in Rocky Mountain National Park. Easy home on level ground around the lake. Views of the mountains are awesome.
  • One of the most beautiful locations in the Rocky Mountains. Easily accessible from the parking place on the other side of the road enjoy a short hike around the lake, go for a swim or even take your boat and relax on the water. Watch out for the countless Axolotls in the water at the shore!
  • A great walk for families but take the time to do the ridge hike also.
  • Beautiful walk. Easy, flat, about a mile. Gorgeous sunrise on Long's Peak and Mt Meeker.
