Copper Lake

Aspen - Snowmass

Copper Lake (11,321') is located 10.65 miles from East Portal Trailhead (Aspen) and 4.8 miles from Copper Trailhead (Crested Butte) in the Maroon Bells - Snowmass Wilderness. This small but shapely lake is 503' below East Maroon Pass (11,824') on the Crested Butte side. Copper Lake is an ideal camping spot for thru-hikes between Aspen and Crested Butte (15.45 miles), or a 2-car shuttle loop formed by continuing on to Triangle Pass and descending Conundrum Creek (23.35 miles).
