Williams Lake

Aspen - Snowmass

Williams Lake is located 1.9 miles from Hell Roaring Trailhead in the Maroon Bells - Snowmass Wilderness. It lies in a heavily wooded basin off the Hell Roaring Trail, which continues west across the Elk Mountains to the Avalanche - Silver Creek Trail near Carbondale. Though Williams Lake lacks the alpine luster of others in the area, it's a great choice for families, anglers, short-distance camping and simply escaping the crowds. Williams Lake famously inspired John Denver's 'Rocky Mountain High' while he was camping here to view the Perseid Meteor Showers.
