Bierstadt Lake

5.00 out of 5
View Topo Map


The trail starts out in a forest of aspens. You then pop out at the bottom of a very tall moraine. The trail zig zags up the moraine, ascending 1.4 miles. Views of the mountains are all around. You'll then be in a forest again and the lake is straight ahead. There's also a trail that goes all the way around the lake and through the trees.
Trail length: 3 miles

    Awesome trail. I loved everything about it. From walking through the aspens, to climbing up the moraine, to the amazing views of the mountains from above the trees, to the lake, to the trail around the lake. You won't want to miss this one.
