Rainbow Lakes & Arapaho Glacier Overlook Trails
The four small Rainbow Lakes are in a spectacular high-mountain setting nestled next to the soaring tundra, glacier-carved Caribou ridgeline. The real treat is the view from the lakes, plus there’s good fishing if the thunder isn’t rolling. The Arapaho Glacier Overlook Trail is more challenging but an even more stunning spectacle. These trails and the campground are heavily used in the summer. The area melts out, and dries out, later in the summer (July/August) in an average snow year because of the elevation. Bring insect repellent.
