Montgomery Reservoir reviews
Pleasant and short hike to the reservoir, worth spending few hours to roam around or just sit and enjoy the view. more »

Beautiful. Old mining area with waterfalls.
Beautiful area that usually has great fishing but in 2018 we visited a couple months earlier than usual and didn't have much luck. Hopefully we'll be back in August again soon but the Lake Crystal/Hayden Meadows more than satisfied our fishing desires even after the much longer drive from Breckenridge.
