This is a wonderful hike and easy for all fitness levels. We did not realize that this connects to the Meadow Creek trail that you can take from just outside Frisco. Highly recommend you connect and hike the entire trail. Easy, scenic and wonderful family...More

We loved the hike as it was short and moderate with some challenging spots. It had reasonable parking and a good amount of people on the trail. Make sure you see both lakes as we almost stopped at the first one.

In mid summer when the water lilies are in bloom. Considering I live 49 feet above sea level, ony hike at 9k feet is a bit of a challenge but it is a doable hike. Kind of fun crossing streams on wooden bridges or in...More

This was a great moderate level hike. Definitely recommend sturdy hiking shoes, as there are lots of rocks and uneven terrain. The trail is mostly shaded, with some open space to start. I saw lots of families with small kids, but would recommend lots of...More

This trail is now out of control. So overused that the county is beginning to ticket cars parked illegally. You cannot park in the road and obstruct traffic including the Summit Stage. Park at the transfer station in Silverthorne and ride up.

We parked at the Wildernest trailhead and hiked the almost 3 mile trek. Be sure to take a water, as we had no idea how long it was and were thirsty. Beautiful hike through forest with lovely wild flowers. Two lakes at the end, one...More

We have been hiking around Breckenridge for over 20 years. We always selected more challenging hikes: 14ers, 13ers, and more difficult, but physical conditioning dictated a less demanding hike this year. This is a Classic hike! Wild flowers, log crossing over creeks, beautiful views and...More

After a daunting start uphill a gravel road you start the actual hike. Hang in there at the beginning as the rest is a pleasant hike. Loved the view of the Dillon reservoir. Lovely lake just past the lily pad pond.

Loved this walk, wildflowers but shady. Awesome. If you start from the Frisco end it is pretty rocky and a bit steep...more moderate than easy. But, it is gorgeous! Main PROBLEM: crowds!! Don't go on a weekend, and go early!

This is a beautiful hike once you get past the first steep part! Don't stop when you reach the first lake. Keep walking and you'll see another lake! Very peaceful place.
