Reflection Lake gets its name from the incredible reflections on the lake. The gazebo has seats and wildlife information boards and is an excellent viewing point to experience a diversity of waterfowl and the Columbia Mountains in the background. There is a large picnic area and you can often see paragliders and hang gliders from this location. With easy access off Highway 95 at the southeast end of Golden, there is a maintained parking lot which also serves as a staging point for mountain bikers to access the Mountain Shadows trail network.
