Mountain Biking Twin Lakes Loop
#104 of 1,353 mountain bike trails in Colorado
This loop trail around Twin Lakes is at the foot of Mt Elbert (highest peak in Colorado) and has fantastic views of the Collegiate Range. There are no technical difficulties, but there is a stream crossing at the western end of Twin Lakes where Lake Creek feeds in. This is a classic loop ride and recommended. Distance really is an approximation.

From US-24 turn East on CO-82 (road to Independence Pass / Aspen). Drive about 6 miles to the tiny town of Twin Lakes . Parking lot is across the street from the resteraunt/inn (great food!). There is a road going up the hill, across from the power plant, that takes you up to Lakeview campground, for those that would like to stay and camp in the area.
