Great Lakes for Paddling in Colorado

There are more than 4000 lakes and reservoirs in our state, and that means tons of places to get out on the water and enjoy the outdoors. We've put together a photo gallery showing off some of the great places to go if you enjoy paddling.  Kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats are perfect for many of the stops on our list. Some of these lakes do not even allow powerboats, making them an even better fit for your stand-up paddleboat, or just a little more peace and quiet.

Manitou Incline: What To Know Before You Go

One thing that can help alleviate some apprehension is knowing what to expect when you go and how to make it happen. I can tell you it is definitely a challenge and a great experience, and I think it should be on every hiker's Colorado bucket list.
