Nice side trip. We explored the Magnolia Mine and hiked along the Wheeler Trail. Lots of historic sites beyond the reservoir.

This is a beautiful mountain lake. The hike up the waterfall is a "don't miss" hike. You can catch a lot of trout near the dam.

After reading the positive reviews, we added this to our Colorado itinerary and so glad we did. First of all, I can't imagine doing ANY of the rugged mountain roads in Colorado without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. That's what we rented for our trip...More

This lake is absolutely beautiful! A little challenging to get to in a normal vehicle; jeep or something similar is better for the gravel roads. Caught lots of trout on spinning rods; used little spinners & also power bait with bobbers. Had a blast! Also...More
