ALPINE LAKES.

UPPER & LOWER BUSHNELL LAKES.

This lake is in the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness. It is a long day hike (4.6 miles) one way with an elevation gain of 3,100ft.  It sits at an elevation of 11,860 ft with no distinguishing trail between the lower and upper lake. Bushnell lakes sit under Bushnell Peak and SE of Stout Lakes drainage. They have beautiful but small cutthroat trout. A beautiful waterfall is seen in the spring and summer which provides a good waypoint (no trail) to guide you up and into Upper Bushnell Lake. Waypoints and GPS coordinates are provided in a guidebook “Central Colorado Alpine Lakes“.
