Location

Fern Lake is one of Rocky Mountain National Park's most popular destinations, sought for its generous trout stock and numerous backcountry campsites. Iconic peaks such as the Little Matterhorn(11,586'), Knobtop Mountain (12,331'), Gabletop Mountain (11,939') and Castle Rock frame this heavily wooded basin.

Details

The Fern Lake Trail rolls gently beside the Big Thompson River through aspen and mixed pine to The Pool - Cub Lake - Fern Lake Trail junction (1.8 miles : 8,365').

Many good fishing spots can be found on this mild stretch, a leafy corridor that yields berries, mushrooms, and bright autumn colors. Look for beaver, deer, elk and bear along the way.


Notes

10 essentials, snowshoes/ traction device, cold weather gear.
