Leadville Fish Hatchery and Evergreen Lakes


Leadville National Fish Hatchery provides many exciting visitor opportunities. Open to the public, the hatchery welcomes visitors for a closeup view of the fish production process. With over 36,000 visitors annually, the volunteer hosts at the Visitor Center bring the hatchery experience alive. Tours available by appointment to organized groups. There are many hiking opportunities with the Rock Creek, Highline, and Kearney Park Trails all originating on hatchery grounds. These three trails intersect with the Colorado Trail in the Mt. Massive Wilderness Area, offering different routes to hike a loop starting and ending at the hatchery.
