Sloan’s Lake

One of the large lakes in the area, Sloan’s Lake can be a good spot to check fall through spring for ducks of various sorts, the occasional loon (usually Common, but sometimes Pacific) and grebes (this can be a good spot for Horned Grebe). Connected to the wider Denver-area bike trail system, Sloan’s is a great option to hit on a longer trip that includes other areas, such as City Park or the South Platte Greenway.
