Peterson Lake, Colorado, is a breathtaking gem nestled amidst the majestic Rocky Mountains. This serene alpine lake captivates visitors with its pristine beauty and tranquil surroundings. In August 2020, the Cameron Peak Fire devastated 208,000 acres of thick pine forests, including those around Peterson Lake. Yet, the lake offers a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Peterson Lake Road is well maintained until the final half mile, where it remains rugged tantalizing offroad enthusiasts. The road ends with room for parking at the Lake Peterson Trailhead, a hiking trail that heads south to Rocky Mountain National Park. Several designated campsites are also found along the road.
