Uncompahgre Trail near Lake City 1


The trail to the summit of Uncompahgre Peak is about 8 miles round trip. The 3,000' vertical gain takes you to some of the most amazing views in not only the San Juan Mountain Range, but in all of Colorado. This view of the trail comes from the lower elevations as you are just getting started. If you are in Lake City and have the time, the effort to reach this summit is well worth it!
