Trail Overview
Chinns Lake
Chinns Lake is located in a beautiful narrow valley. Unlicensed vehicles are permitted, but there isn't a staging area. Trail will start out broad, passing through a residential area, but quickly narrows to become a thin, rugged mountain road. There are a few obstacles that are optional, and the lake is great fun. This is a nice weekend destination.
Getting There
Take I-70 west from Denver to Fall River Road, Exit 238. Drive north about 6.6 miles to unmarked road on the left just before gated residence. This turn is at the bottom of a tight switchback that breaks hard right uphill.
