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.

Great well maintained trail! Could have used more switch backs as it is pretty steep at points!

Nice trail on a great day.

very technical sections, and very dynamical, more of a thru or a out and back. Extremely fun. Difficult level.

Enjoyed this hike. Enough of a challenge to keep it interesting with beautiful views and a variety of birds.

Easy to follow trail with little elevation change. The views were alright. If you’re looking for a stroll, this is your place, but if you want a challenge, this is a no go.

Great hike. steep in places but beautiful views of the mountains and lake.

This is a great ride, very peaceful. The views of the lake and of Fishers Peak are simply amazing. There are a few small valleys that offer a chance to get the blood flowing, the climbs coming out of these valleys is very easy. This is all west bound from the Camp ground. I have yet to ride it back from the Cokedale side. I ride this trail every chance I get.

Very steep hike up and down. Main issues were how hard the trails were to see. My wife and I ran off the trail 3-4 times because the trail essentially is a couple rocks here and there and is hard to see

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.
