Cottonwood Lake lies to the west of Buena Vista, along with one of the largest clusters of 14,000 foot peaks in North America. Here, part of the Sawatch Range are the Collegiate Peaks, noted for their Ivy League names. Cottonwood Lake is tucked between Mount Princeton and Mount Yale, and snuggled up to the Continental Divide. Heading west from Buena Vista’s only stoplight in town, CR 306 (Cottonwood Pass Road) and CR 344 lead visitors to Cottonwood Canyon, Cottonwood Pass and this captivating view of Cottonwood Lake.
