TRAIL DESCRIPTION
There are several trails in the Roaring Fork Valley that are amazing and this is just one of them. American Lake is an out and back trek that takes you through lush mountain meadows and wondering through waves of pines. With some scrambling through a few scree fields, the destination of American Lake is well worth the climb. The water is still and peaceful surrounded by trees and back dropped by the many ridges of the Elk Mountain Range.
