Alpine Lake Hikes Near Denver | Brainard Lake

Now that the winter snow is inevitably melting, some of the higher altitude waters will also be thawing! One alpine lake that I think is worthwhile to see during the late spring/early summer is Brainard Lake near Nederland, Colorado. This area is located a bit north of Boulder, entering a bit deeper into the Front Range. Here you can explore at some higher altitudes and see the Red Rock Pond/Lake, great mountain views, and a massive Alpine Lake situated at the base of some snow-capped peaks!
