Wheeler Lake

Wheeler Lake

Wheeler Lake is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 3.717m (12,194ft) above the sea level, located in Park County, Colorado, in USA. It’s one of the highest roads of Colorado.

The road to the lake is gravel and rocky. It’s called Pv32. It’s impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Stay away if you're scared of heights. 4x4 vehicle with high clearance required. Winter comes early and stays late on this trail, so you may only be able to safely run it in the middle of the summer. Avoid committing your vehicle to what is in front of you until you are sure of what you are getting into because things could get worse. A traveler on this road must be experienced and completely devoted to safe, slow and obstacle-conscious driving to deter danger. This is definitely not a Sunday drive. The steep drive will take some skill, some patience, and some tolerance for vertigo.
