Turquoise Lake - Lake County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This is one of the three large lakes in Lake County, and usually the least productive. However, this can be a good lake for grebes, and there is usually at least one Common Loon in the late fall. Small numbers of ducks are often present as well. During the summer there is usually too much traffic on the lake for birds, but the nearby spruce-fir forest can have a few species.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: From the center of Leadville, head west on 6th ave. Stay straight on 6th as it becomes Lake CR 4, for 3.5 miles to a three way intersection. Take the right fork, which is the continuation of CR 4. Turquoise Lake is along the north side of this road in about a mile, and can be scanned from multiple points along CR 4.
