Stunning Blue Lake Above Telluride

  • Rating: Hard
  • Hours: 4 hours round trip
  • Elevation Gain: 2,000 feet

Blue Lake is located above the Bridal Veil Power Plant and is 6.6 miles round trip. We recommend parking at the top of the power plant and beginning the hike there, otherwise, it adds several miles and hours onto the hike. The path is not well-marked past the initial trailhead, so be sure to stay left at every split. This is a great hike with plenty of waterfalls, wildflowers, old mining equipment and a stunning blue lake at the end. The hike also branches off to Lewis Lake and Silver Lake.
