Cave Lake

Cave Lake

Cave Lake is a high mountain lake at an elevation of 3.713m (12,181ft) above the sea level, located in Chaffee County of south-central Colorado, in USA. It’s one of the highest mountain roads of Colorado.

The road to the summit, located within the Rocky Mountains, is gravel and rocky. It’s impassable in winters. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep full of hairpin turns. East of the lake, a gravel road climbs up to 3.891m (12,765ft) above the sea level. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. Even in summer you can confront with snowy days.
