Description

The McIntosh Lake Trail is half paved, and half gravel. It encircles the lake, usually very close to the shoreline and is a popular place to walk, jog or bike. There are multiple places to access the trail with official parking lots as marked on this map, but also ample on-street parking along the south side. This is a dammed lake with the southwest corner forming the retailing wall. From most places along the path you get great views of Mount Meeker and Long's Peak to the west.

Flora & Fauna

Keep an eye out for a wide array of wildlife, including prairie dogs, blue herons, red foxes, and bald eagles. Cottonwoods.
