Set high in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest, the road to the lake is paved. It’s called Forest Road 346. Starting at WY-130, the road is 1.60km (1.0 mile) long. It’s usually closed from late October through late June or early July (depending on snow). It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years. Very limited season, due to snowfall and elevation. The drive offers delightful views of the Snowy Range. Be sure to carry bear spray with you as you explore, and keep an eye out for wildlife.
