The Sandbeach Lake trail starts at the parking lot across from the Wild Basin pay station. As the trail steeply rises from the valley floor you can see the N. Vrain drainage to the east. Further a long we will cross Hunters Creek which flows throw one of the most pristine valleys in RMNP. When we arrive at the lake we can walk around the sandy beach and have our lunch. Enjoy the views south to St. Vrain and Meadow Mountains. Longs Peak, Mt. Meeker, the Keyboard of the Winds, and Pagoda Mountain are out to the north.


Please bring trekking poles, microspikes, and the ten essentials. There still will be some snow up near the lake. I scouted the trail on 4/27 and there was lots of snow. Hopefully a lot will be melted in the coming weeks.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
