Elf Lane – Red Feather Lakes, CO


Elf Lane (aka, “Gnome Road”) is mountain trail in the quaint village of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. The trail is a quarter-mile long between Lake Hiawatha and Lake Apache.

As you enter Elf Lane, there is a sign posted on a tree that reads: “PLEASE Do not take us, Break us, or Relocate us As We Live Here on ELF Lane to Watch over children and All the Little Animals.”


Hikers wandering or cars cruising the scenic dirt road will find ceramic elves and gnomes as well as fairy doors and faces among the trees, boulders and bushes.


Besides, the elfin characters hikers will also come across angels, spiders, a pink flamingo, and even SpongBob SquarePants lurking in the woods.


NOTE: Red Feather Lakes is also home of the Shambhala Mountain Center, a 600 acre Buddhist retreat with the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya, an ornate Buddhist commemorative monument housing sacred relics associated with the Buddha.
