Twin Lakes & The Interlaken Trail Hike – The Trailhead, Buena Vista
Here is a picture we grabbed from yesterday. It was very cloudy, but you can still see the awesome mountains that surround the lakes:
The Interlaken Trail runs just above Twin Lakes, so we grabbed some snowshoes this weekend and explored the area.
Here’s what you need to know if you want to give it a try too:
The Interlaken Trail has packed snow right now, making it perfect for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. We suggest adding some extra wax to your cross-country skis before heading out, as it’s gotten a little bit slushy recently. If you’re exploring the area, we recommend just staying on the Interlaken Trail to the south, as the north side of the lake is deep and hard to trek through.
HOW TO GET THERE
Head to the traffic light in downtown Buena Vista, and travel north on U.S. Highway 24 W for about 19.5 miles. Turn left to travel on CO 82 West.
