Summit Lake Trailhead

This trailhead on the Mount Evans road provides access to the Chicago Lakes Trail, Summit Flats Trail, and Mount Evans Trail. Parking is in the Summit Lake parking lot.


Follow the directions to the Echo Lake Trailhead above, but instead of turning left just before the Mount Evans entrance, continue through the fee station and up the road 9 miles to the Summit Lake parking lot. To reach the trail, hike east a short distance along the Mount Evans road from the parking lot to a sign marking the start of the trail.
