Billings Lake

Vehicle Types


Easy road to gorgeous mountain lake.

The road is fairly bumpy and mostly in the trees until you get to the North Fork Reservoir. This is a popular fishing lake and camp spots go quickly. The scenery gets even better at Billings Lake as the entire valley comes into view. Consider taking a side trip on F.S. 219 that connects to the exit portion of Taylor Mountain, Trail #41. F.S. 219 is a power line road with a few moderate spots, but is mostly easy.


Trail Ratings Defined

Bumpy embedded rock requires high clearance. Low range recommended after North Fork Reservoir.

Trail Updates

Open all the way to the lake. Debris field cleared but still visible as you make your way through. This past season has changed it some, moderate in sections. A lot of exposed rocks, deep ruts, and heavy traffic. Use caution as we encountered many individuals speeding and bouncing all over the trail.

Trail closed north of Angel of Shavano campground with a barricade and then gate. Indicated avalanche threat.
