Hike to Geneva Lake
Colorado › Geneva Lake Trailhead
Added by The Outbound Collective
A great lake for fishing, picnicking, and photography, just 1 hour outside Carbondale.
This is an intermediate hike with scenic views, even before reaching the lake and waterfall. Note that access to the trailhead does require 4WD, as the final section of road is difficult and steep in sections.

Amazing views, peaceful pristene lake
My girlfriend and I backpacked out here after 4x4ing to the trailhead. Just the drive alone is scenic as hell but once you start to climb on the trail you are blessed with views of the backside of the maroon bells as well as snowmass peak. The lake is a perfect place to set up a hammock and relax under the sun.
