Overview
Columbine Lake Trail #509 is a 3.21 mile one way hike with 2,489 feet accumulated elevation gain. Located 41 miles north of Durango Colorado.


This “secret” spot is frequented only by a few locals, due to its isolated location and difficult access. The trail consists of many steep switchbacks, and then eases out into the basin below Columbine Lake. Water is fairly scarce, but it is there. A few camp spots are also there, and tents should be moved if you plan to stay more then two days, because of the fragile tundra. A trout dinner is a consideration for the fishing fan. Only experienced mountaineers should climb the surrounding peaks.

Check out the Official Route.
