Loch Lomond
Drive along a mountain stream, and enjoy the wildflowers as you make your way to the amazing lake at the top of this trail. Camping is available in designated spots, and there are waterfalls and other lakes to hike to.
History
“Loch” is the Scottish word for “Lake.” We are assuming Colorado’s Loch Lomond is named after the more famous Loch Lomond in Scotland. Scotland’s Loch Lomond is much larger, measuring 24 miles in length and 600 feet deep. It is a popular national park and recreation area close to Glasgow. Both Colorado and Scotland lakes share a natural beauty against a backdrop of towering mountains.
