Stony Pass to Kite Lake

Stony Pass traverses the continental divide and crosses Pole Creek before continuing to the final destination of Kite Lake at 12,139 feet above sea level. When you stop, be sure to spend a few minutes admiring the beautiful turquoise water. Be aware that the water level at Pole Creek can vary significantly depending on rains and snow melt. The scenery is especially wonderful when the wildflowers are in full bloom.
