Echo Lake Park - Search Nearby - Added by Jason Hatfield

A beautiful subalpine lake with easy year-round access.

Located at the base of Mt. Evans Road, Echo Lake sits next to Squaw Pass Road, providing a great jumping-off point for numerous adventures. The park serves as a trailhead for hiking or snowshoeing into the Mount Evans Wilderness, offers picnic areas, and includes a nearby campground with 17 sites. The area has dark night skies for photographing the Milky Way, and when the lake is frozen interesting cracks form in the ice. The lake is also a popular fishing spot, although actually catching a fish can prove difficult.

Sweet Views

Great spot, if you find the main parking area full head up the scenic byway just past echo lake towards Juniper pass for some really, really sweet views of Mt. Evans and more!
