RMNP 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. This table contains all the lakes I've visited with links to blog posts and photo albums. I include a lake in the list if it is located within park boundaries or if the trail to the lake starts inside the park.

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).
