Jasper Lake Circuit

Jasper Lake Circuit Professional Review and Guide

"Jasper Lake is a reservoir with a barely noticeable dam and sometimes barely noticeable water. Normally, its three obvious forested shores and glacier-carved ridge, rising to the north, proclaim that frozen water in the distant past was always present.

The first part of the road begin at junction of Colorado Hwy. 72 and 119 in Nederland. From the south edge of Nederland, half a mile from the joining of these highways, turn right on CR 116, toward Lake Eldora Ski Area. Where the road forks uphill (left) stay on the lower fork and continue through the community of Eldora. Its pavement ends shortly. A mile past
Eldora, the road forks again. The left fork leads on to a cobbled road rough enough to discourage use of normal passenger cars, which can be parked along the south edge of the road from Eldora."
