Stand Up Paddle at Trout Lake

Originally added by Nola Svoboda

Sitting just below the summit of Lizard Head Pass right along Highway 145, Trout Lake is an easy 20 minute drive from Telluride. It is a perfect spot for SUPing that boasts a beautiful and stunning backdrop.

Trout Lake is large enough to provide a good cardio workout without getting crowded and small enough to tour around for hours. It's a perfect lake for SUPing with friends, SUP games, SUP yoga and even SUP fishing.
