Trinidad Lake is a multipurpose project for flood control, irrigation and recreation. Trinidad is in the heart of historic coal mining country. The community of Cokedale, just northwest of the lake was named for its coke ovens. The ovens converted coal to coke, a more efficient fuel than coal. Remnants of a few coke ovens are located on the project.
Directions: Located 3 mi W of I-25 and city of Trinidad on CO 12.
