Pan Ark Estates is a semi-rural community located above the Twin Lakes, the largest glacial lakes in Colorado. Residents and visitors spend much of their time outdoors in every season, as the sun shines year round. Our neighborhood is paradise for hikers and cross-country skiers with its quick-and-easy access to the Colorado Trail, the Continental Divide Trail, a spectacular 12-mile trail around the lake, and the Mount Elbert South Trailhead. Fishermen enjoy the abundance of lake, brown, cutthroat, and rainbow trout in our mountain streams, Lake Creek, the Arkansas River, and Lake Forebay, as well as in the Twin Lakes.
Independent outdoorsmen enjoy the challenges of rural living here, and social folks thrive in our close-knit community. Anywhere you wander, you can find a helping hand.
