  • Gorgeous!! Decently clean bathrooms as well. To my understanding this area technically needed a separate day pass, but it was worth it to be able to go walk towards the overlook and spend some time at the lake. Be aware of changing weather, especially if your permit time is for the afternoon. Enjoy! *Pictures from end of June!
  • This was great experience going on the trail to Mt. Evans. We could go up to the first mountain on the way and then returned back. The overall view from the top is awesome. The lake looks so beautiful.
