off road driving
Road is very narrow in places. Hope no one is coming in the opposite direction We parked at the ghost town and hiked up the rest of the way since we didn't have 4wd. Beautiful lake views
Very pretty lakes, road does require 4WD in just a couple spots as you approach the lakes. Do not expect to be alone here, at least during the summer months. Many people fishing, camping, driving up in their rented Jeeps.
This trail is off Hwy 145 south of Telluride. An easy trail that goes by Alta Ghost Town, and ends at a small Alpine Lake
