The Twin Lakes Loop trail, located outside Leadville, is a rolling lakeside route and is not especially technical. There are a few stream crossings and the trail is located at high elevation.
Twin Lakes Loop is located in close proximity to Mt. Elbert, which stands at 14,440 feet and is the highest peak in the North American Rocky Mountains and the second highest in the continental United States. Views toward Mt. Elbert are vast and riders will have great scenery of the lake, forest and mountains for the duration of the ride.
