Strawberry Lake is a naturally formed lake located in the Arapaho National Forest Area. This elusive trail may be hard to find, but is well worth the effort. The initial ascent is difficult, but evens out as the trail progresses. Hikers are rewarded with a water lily covered lake and pristine views of the Indian Peaks range. Take care to stay on trail and on the designated dock areas, as the natural peat terrain is very delicate.
