Thanks to its picturesque location, easy accessibility, and the good hiking trails nearby, this small alpine lake below Flattop Mountain and Hallett Peak is one of the most popular destinations in the park. Free park shuttle buses can take you there May through October.

If you are already in RMNP, this is a great hiking location. Easy hikes and moderate hikes. Beautiful views and a clear, blue lake is CO at it's best. Best in midweek when crowds are thinner; the RMNP buses are recommended much easier than dealing with parking congestion).
