Description

This trail circles Jefferson Lake and provides access for fishing.

The State of Colorado stocks Jefferson Lake with rainbow trout.

The lake is surrounded by scenic mountains. A stream and a small brook enter the lake on the far side.

The trail is best on the eastern shore and makes a nice stroll for persons who do not ordinarily hike. The trail on the western shore is more rocky.

Jefferson Lake is a very popular area with picnic tables and restrooms. Because of this heavy use, camping is not allowed near the lake itself, but several campgrounds are available on the way to the lake.

Well water is available at the campgrounds on the way to Jefferson Lake.
