My wife and I stopped here "on our way" to Idaho Springs. The lake and trails are fantastic. It is an easy hike around Echo Lake with flat terrain and beautiful scenery.

The park is about 15 miles south of Idaho Springs but very curvy road so figure about 30 minutes to get there. It's just before the turn off and pay station for Mount Evans.

At the foot of Mt Evens this Park and Lake is a short drive from Denver. There is a real nice gift shop to pick up some Souvenirs and take some great pics.

Great place to stop and take in the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. The water is cold but you dont want to swim in the lake. LOL It does get busy with all of the tourists and local people but worth every minute

Stop and walk around the lake. Beautiful calm blue water. Walked into about a million dragonflies buzzing around us like something in a dream. So pretty; some of our best pictures came from here.
