About Forest Lakes and the Pine River Valley
The Forest Lakes Community is located in La Plata County, Colorado and sits between the Town of Bayfield and the San Juan Mountains in the Pine River Valley. With the climate, elevation, and abundance of water, early settlers to the Pine River Valley found that the area was ideal for prosperous settlements and the growing of crops. The early settlements are characterized by the trials and triumphs of these early pioneers determined to develop the land and carve a niche for themselves in the San Juan Mountains. Named Rio de Los Pinos by 18th-century Spanish explorers, the Pine River Valley boasts some of the richest land in Southwestern Colorado. As pioneers and settlers became aware of these natural resources, towns sprouted up throughout the valley proper. One of these communities was historic Bayfield.
