The mild climate and large lake are ideal for water sports. Anglers catch rainbow and brown trout, largemouth bass, channel catfish, walleye, crappie and bluegill. All types of boaters appreciate the open waters and modern services. Miles of trails winding through ancient and interesting local history, and spectacular scenery provide visitors and nature enthusiasts with great outdoor exploration opportunities. Trinidad Lake is a wonderful place to escape the crowds and establish a basecamp from which to explore the great outdoors plus visit interesting local attractions. Area attractions like the former mining town of Trinidad with its colorful history make great side trips.

awesome trail. good parking, lots of animal tracks, lots!

went to the top, I stood and looked down..awesome!

Did the one mile loop. Views were spectacular! It would have been better in cooler weather - I think the dog was uncomfortable walking on the warm rocks. But there are places where he could stop in the shade too.

I believe it is 5 miles roundtrip. At the 2.5 mile area jumped on the road to get back to the starting point. When taking the road back it was around 9 miles, the first hill was kinda hard, then all downhill. I would rate this trail for mnt biking as difficult.

Completed the loop in the Levsa canyons trail and it was really nice, super quiet and very peaceful. The views of Lake Trinidad were great. We also hiked down to the water and we're surprised at how clear it was. If I return to Trinidad in the future I will definitely visit this place again.

One of my favorite hikes. Nice views of the Sangre de Cristo range while hiking the hills and valley around Trinidad Lake.
