Colter reservoir does not hold water, it is an open meadow. Buckshot springs are not near Colter. There are trails nearby namely Railroad Grade, East and West Baldy trails and the East fork and West fork trails.
This lake is so wonderful. Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest is a good site to stop by, and a delightful close by hotel is BEST WESTERN Sunrise Inn. Skiers from all over love Sunrise Park. 20% of the runs at Sunrise Park are hard, and 80% are
green and blue; there is a total of 800 acres of skiable land. The 65 runs at Sunrise Park are all magnificent; the vertical drop is 1,800 feet at this ski hill.
