Jet lake is also located in the Flat Tops wilderness area so no vehicles allowed but is only about a 15 to 20 minute hike to the lake (an easy pretty flat hike) then about another 15 minute hike into shadow lake , about 15 mor into blair lake and about 15 more into crater lake. Elk lakes are located about 5 minutes from the wilderness area only 1/2 mile to the parking for jet lakes. Says julie
What a location this is for outdoors folks. If you need
a location to stay Quality Inn & Suites On The River is a perfect choice, and don't leave Jet Lake without first going for a hike along the Last Chance Trail.
