Lawn Lake Trail, Estes Park

Directions: Go to Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park. Pick up a park map at one of the park entrances and make your way to Horseshoe Park where you will find the Lawn Lake Trail Head.

Trail Information: The trail (approximately 6 miles one way, with a 2300 foot elevation gain) winds through an evergreen forest along the Roaring River.  The trail is well marked.  You will also see mountain peaks, and perhaps some of the abundant wildlife populating the area.  Bring water, food and be prepared for adverse weather.  The more ambitious can continue on to Upper and Lower Crystal Lakes or on lesser used trails which continue on above the tree line.
