Sylvan Lake Picnic Area

This beautiful high-country lake is located between towering mountains on three sides and is near Sylvan Pass at 8,524 feet (2,598 m). The main picnic area is on the north side of the road nestled among tall trees with a small stream running right through the area. Six tables, a restroom, and some garbage canisters are located here. The other part of the picnic area is directly across the main road on the edge of Sylvan Lake. A 1923 U.S. Geological marker can be seen near the tables. Some uniquely positioned trees with the lake in the background make this a nice location for some good photos.
