Lower Blue Lake via Blue Lakes Trail
13 reviews Uncompahgre National Forest #1 hike out of 15 in
3 hrs 12 min
This is a difficult out and back trail to Lower Blue Lake in Uncompahgre National Forest. This trail is very popular during the summer. There are additional trails connecting above blue lakes pass.
You will see wildflowers and waterfalls along the way. This is a fragile alpine environment please stay on the trail and practice leave no trace principles.
Consider carpooling with others. The parking area is small and fills up quickly.
No exposure until above blue lakes on blue lakes pass. Jeep 4x4 access is possible from Camp Bird Road but will require a hike over the pass to the lakes.
