Hike Sandbeach Lake in RMNP

  • Sep 1, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

DISTANCE: 8.8 miles RT

SKILL LEVEL: Average - a few steep places

Start-End Elevation: 8,312' to 10,283'

TOTAL Elevation Change: +2,146'


** signup for the Waitlist and if you have a good attendance record or no attendance record,  I will add you to the 'Yes' column **

CARPOOL: 7:10AM is the Carpool time, NOT the Trailhead time!!

I highly suggest carpooling due to the popularity of RMNP on this weekend.  Not to mention sharing in gas and entrance fees.  Yes, that means if you are a Rider, chip in for both or share your RMNP pass... For those interested in carpooling from Denver, I suggest meeting at the Wagon Trail park n Ride by 120th and I-25.  It is just West of Cracker Barrel. We will leave for the trailhead at 7:15.  I drive a bronze Outback and I will be on the North end of the lot. 


Just Mapquest it baby!


Dogs Allowed: NO

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:  Beautiful!  Awesome lake.  But seriously, I got beer and trivia in like 45 minutes, so you can look this up online!


Should bring layers, water & snacks...

Swimsuit is optional - no photos allowed of my belly - ok?

Bring $5 each if you want to see if I can swim the width of the lake.

Bring $5 and a wetsuit for the full length...



TBA, probably that BBQ place in Lyons...

    My apologies for not making it-- exhausted this A.M. after a big hike yesterday, and late eve. out. My mistake, the latter.
