Not to be confused with Blue Lake above Bridal Veil, this trail features three high alpine lakes and starts off of County Road 7 between Telluride and Ridgway. Hikers will traverse through the woods and fields of wildflowers before approaching the first lake, which is approximately 6.3 miles and 1,590 feet in elevation gain. Hikers can continue to the other two lakes, which take an additional few hours and make this trip close to 11 miles. If you're feeling ambitious, you can even reach Mt. Sneffels (14,158) from this route. This is an out-and-back trail.
