Twin Lakes Dam info

Reclamation is pleased to announce that the trail across Twin Lakes Dam, near Leadville Colorado, has re-opened. The public is invited to walk, bike, or ride horses across the dam.

In order to keep the trail open, Reclamation asks that people please not loiter on or fish from the dam, but just cross it following the trail. The following is the news release:

Trail across Twin Lakes Dam Re-opens

After almost seven years the Bureau of Reclamation announced today the trail across Twin Lakes Dam is re-opening.

“Hikers and cyclists will no longer have to walk around the dam, but are now able to cross it directly, staying on the trail,” said Mike Collins, Area Manager for Reclamation’s Eastern Colorado office which oversees Twin Lakes. “Re-opening would not happen without the support and continued participation of the public.”

In order for the trail to remain open, the public needs to be vigilant about activity at the dam.

“We ask that the public use the trail only to cross the dam,” said Howard Bailey, safety and security manager for Reclamation’s Eastern Colorado Area Office. “We need your help keeping this facility safe.”

Loitering and fishing are not allowed from the dam or within a 100-foot perimeter. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the dam.

“Safety and security remain our top priorities,” said Collins. “It takes all of us working together, protecting our public facilities, to make something like this possible.”
