Alpine Lakes

A few years ago I decided to “collect” RMNP lakes. This is a project I will likely never complete. There are something like 150 named lakes in the park. The first table contains all the lakes I’ve visited, along with links to blog posts and photo albums. I include a lake in this list if it is located within park boundaries or if the trail to the lake starts inside the park.

Although the vast majority of alpine lakes I’ve visited are in RMNP, I have hiked to lakes in other locations. Those are in the second table.

RMNP hike distances are according to the Foster guide. When multiple routes are available, I cite the route I took (or most commonly took, if I’ve been there multiple times).
