Blue Lakes Trail

  This description has a few accurate things in it, but the way it's put together, it makes no sense, even to someone who lives here. It jumbles things from Telluride to Silverton in with Blue Lakes Trail. It is indeed beautiful. And you could hike up Sneffels (local 14'er) from this side, if you are fit and up for a very, very long adventure.
Says Susan

Colorado is a good place for outdoors people. Alright, enough of spending all this time inside
    a building, time to get out, and Blue Lakes Trail in Ouray County, Colorado is a really good place to spend some time. Pretty far from Montrose you find Blue Lakes Trail but hiking it is always fun.
Hiking trails like this one
are plentyful in the Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains, there's no better way to enjoy these mountains. Camping at Sunshine Campground is always a good experience; it's a great idea to stop by Wilson Creek. So much exciting stuff to do here in the Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains, too great to be true. Ridgway State Park is a good place to stretch your legs a bit. If you come at the right time of year, Whitewater Outfitter - Waterwolf offers some great whitewater;  
the wonderful folks of Ouray like to hang out nearby. Soar down the rapids of Whitewater Outfitter - Further Adventures in a kayak, and a great site to camp here at Blue Lakes Trail is Ouray KOA Kampground. Donít forget to go to Cocan Flats since you're here at Blue Lakes Trail.
