Sprague Lake (HA):   D/R/E: 1/2 mile loop - zero elevation gain
Hiking Distance Is The Total Length Of The Hike

Sprague Lake, placid and gentle amidst the rugged terrain of the Rocky Mountains, offers quiet waterside rambling for all comers, including families and those who are wheelchair-bound. This wide, handicapped-accessible path encircles the small lake, passing through its verdant wetlands and the surrounding open woodlands. Fishermen find the shallow waters of the lake very attractive, and the sound of whizzing fly rods often mingles with the lapping of water against the shores. A series of benches offers respite from which hikers can savor views of Hallett Peak and its sisters. A large picnic ground is beside the parking lot just west of the lake; this also is where you'll find the restrooms. In addition, a spur trail leads from the lake to a handicapped-accessible campsite.
