Cobalt and Crystal Lakes Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Just a few miles from the extremely popular and overused Monarch Lakes lie four scenic and often overlooked lakes in a rock-filled basin on a shoulder of the Great Western Divide. Due to a steep and rough access trail, these lakes are somewhat isolated, making them ideal destinations for day hikes and backpack trips."
