Timberline Lake is a small lake located just south of Browns Lake in the Comanche Lake Wilderness. This shallow lake contains brook trout. Camping is permitted in designated campsites only.  Take Highway 287 north from Fort Collins to Highway 14. Travel west on Highway 14 for 25 miles to the Pinegree Park Road. Take the Pingree Park Road to the Crown Point Road (4.2 miles). Turn west on the Crown Point Road and travel west for 11.6 miles to the Browns Lake Trailhead. The Browns Lake Trail begins on the Crown Point road, crosses the Dadd Gulch and Flowers trails, and travels uphill and downhill a couple of times.  Hike about 4.3 miles to the lake.  There is ample parking at the trailhead on the north side of the road. The trail starts at an elevation of 10,500 feet, travels over 11,499 feet. This trail is of moderate difficulty primarily because of the altitude and a few steep areas. The early sections of the trail where it crosses the tundra are very rocky. Much of the trail from the trailhead to the Flowers Trail crosses open country and can be windy at times. The landscape is heavily timbered from the Flowers Trail to just above Browns Lake.

This lake lies in the Comanche Lake Wilderness area so you cannot drive to them, you need to either hike or get to them on horseback.   There is ample grass and water for horses. It is usually fishable from June to October.  Timberline Lake is at N4036.206' Latitude and W10541.009' Longitude with an elevation of 11,449 ft.
