Interlaken Professional Review and Guide

"The Twin Lakes area between Leadville and Buena Vista is very scenic. In addition to the lakes, some of Colorado’s highest peaks loom above to the west. This ski and showshoe tour puts you in the center of this paradise.

As you ski west on the Colorado Trail along the edge of the lake, you face Mount Elbert, Colorado’s highest mountain, en route to the ghost town of Interlaken. Built as a resort in the 1870s between the Twin Lakes, Interlaken is now merely remnants."

GREAT HIKE. Snowshed it, little hard to find the start of the trail, but once we did great views, not a hard hike at all. Old time homes that you can go into a explore if you like along the trail.
