Gore Lake can be reached via Gore Creek Trail starting in East Vail, Colorado. The hike is relatively easy for the first 4.8 miles, climbing 1400 feet to an old grave site. From there it turns sharply upward and climbs another 1200 feet in about 1.5 miles to the lake. Notable landmarks surrounding Gore Lake shown here are Snow Peak, Willow Peak, Red Peak and Deming Mountain. Please click here for a gallery of photos and more descriptions of the hike to Gore Lake.
