Just west of the Edwards is Lake Creek, an alpine valley with thick forests and dominating views to the south where the rugged mountains mark the beginning of the Sawatch Range. There are various communities and ranches within Lake Creek – some gated – all in bucolic settings that are just magnificent. The beauty of Lake Creek is that – although it feels as though you might be in the middle of nowhere, you are actually within 10 minutes of Riverwalk for shopping, restaurants and the movie theatres. Also, the Arrowhead skiing area can bring you up to Beaver Creek Mountain in just minutes.
In winter or summer, riding and hiking trails are out your door.
It’s Colorado. What more can you ask for?
