The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered Colorado’s Best Kept Secret

Colorado is home to by far the most glorious parks and scenic areas in the entire world (and no, I am not exaggerating)… however, I am willing to go out on a limb here by saying this one hidden park in particular is one of the most gorgeous of them all and will make you feel like you have discovered Colorado’s best kept secret:

Located inside of the ever-glorious Rocky Mountain National Park, Sky Pond and Lake of Glass is a stunning area that features one of the most memorable hikes in the state! With its turquoise waters, impressive glaciers, and surrounding falls, Sky Pond and Lake of Glass is unlike anything we have ever seen before. In addition to the lakes themselves, the area also boasts an incredible 9-mile trail that can be accessed via Glacier Gorge Trailhead near Estes Park. (As per All Trails, Take Hwy. 36 out of Estes Park to the Rocky Mountain National Park entrance, then go to Bear Lake Rd. and drive to the Glacier Gorge Trailhead.)
