Blue Lake

Stunning Alpine Lake

Blue Lake is a stunning alpine lake situated above the town of Telluride. This trail starts at the Top of Bridal Veil Falls, so be sure to take that into consideration when planning your hike for the day. 


From the top of Bridal Veil Falls, stay on the road and pass a tin-roofed shed where the road switches upward, sharply to the left, away from the creek. Blue Lake is an hour from this shed. Continue walking on the main road, when you come to a “Y”, take the left toward the pointed pyramid-shaped mountain in the skyline. Walk up a rocky road beside a sometimes wet, dark rock wall to another “Y”. Go right, toward the three-needled pyramid-shaped peak ahead.
