Description

What I would consider one of the prettiest lakes in all of Colorado, Snowmass Lake features unbelievable views of the Snowmass peaks (Snowmass Peak, Snowmass Mountain, and Hagerman Peak), pristine blue water, and great camping.

While this area does get very crowded, if you show up early enough, you're almost guaranteed a camping spot. Don't miss the sunrise here, it's must-see.

Overnight Trip: The lake can be accessed as part of a long day-hike, but I'd recommend coming for an overnight. To get here, you can take the Maroon Snowmass Trail or Buckskin Pass Trail from the Aspen side, or the Geneva Lake Trail from the CB side.
