Colorado's Forgotten Resort in the Woods

Hidden in the forest on the edge of a high mountain alpine lake you will find a hidden ghost resort maintained by the USFS. This hike, high in the Rocky Mountains on Twin Lakes just outside of Leadville, Colorado is the only land access to a resort called Interlaken. The Interlaken Ghost Resort, is located on the south side of Twin Lakes and was considered one of Colorado’s most beautiful resorts in the late 1800’s. But for nearly a century, the abandoned resort’s buildings were left to crumble and its access road was cut off by a rising lake. Leaving it alone and only accessible by trail or boat. So come along with us as we hike along a stunning alpine lake to the Interlaken Ghost Resort just outside of Leadville, Colorado.
