The Meridian Lake subdivision in located in the beautiful Meridian Lake Park in Washington Gulch.

The neighborhood is accessed by a short drive off the main road between Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte. The road itself is easily traveled, but once you reach the neighborhood you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a different world. Meridian Lake is actually comprised of three separate subdivisions, these include:
- Meridian Lake Meadows
- Meridian Lake Park

The neighborhoods boast easy access to all manner of outdoor recreational activities. There is no plowing of the road past the subdivision which means there is ample opportunity to enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and back country skiing during the winter months. The Snodgrass trailhead is situated just past the community, while the trail to the swimming hole at Long Lake is just across the street. This is truly an exceptional area for homeowners who love the outdoors.
