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
On a delightful day at Jet Lake you can take a hike along
the Mansfield Ditch Trail; while you're here, you could also pop by gorgeous Blair Lake. Dry warm beds await you at Clarion Collection Glenwood Suites, and Elk Lakes is a nearby lake that you could explore.
