The gem of Pine Valley Ranch Park is Pine Lake. Skaters and anglers enjoy the ice when they're not warming by the hearth in a lakeside hut. Anglers can enjoy pier fishing in warmer months. Buck Gulch Trail allows access to the Buffalo Creek Recreation Area in Pike National Forest.
12/28/18: Pine Valley Lake has over 8" ice thickness which means ice skating and ice fishing is currently allowed at your own risk. The ice is tested each week and activities will be prohibited when the ice deteriorates.
Please note, Pine Valley Ranch Park is remote with very limited cell service. There are inherent dangers to recreation on the ice and Jeffco Open Space does not claim the ice is safe.
Baehrden Lodge is currently closed.
