Mount Elbert Forebay - Lake County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: On this small lake just north of the Twin Lakes at the base of Mt. Elbert, usually the only thing you will see is the occasional merganser. However, both goldeneyes, both Aechmophorus grebes, and a variety of other waterbirds have shown up here, and occasionally the place can be nearly as birdy as Twin Lakes.

Habitat: Pond/Lake/Reservoir
Directions: Follow US 24 south from Leadville about fifteen miles to its junction with CO 82. Turn right (west) onto 82, following signs for Aspen. In about four miles, turn right (north) on CR 24C. Follow the road through the campground and continue back northeast on CR 24 to the Forebay.
