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.

The first 100 yds is the toughest! Make sure to walk to the 2nd lake, we almost stopped too soon! Go early to avoid heat. It is a popular trail.

It is about 3.3 miles round-trip for this hike. The first 100 yards are up hill. You are immediately rewarded with a mountain view and a view of the Dillion reservoir. It is beautiful.

Continuing the hike you have a wide path with a few creek crossings. You end at Lily Pad Lake. It is well named as it contains hundreds of lily pads.

This is a very nice hike that is appropriate for beginners and children.

It was pretty busy when we went up on a Saturday morning. We went with some friends and our kids, 9 and 4. It's really rocky and there are tree roots everywhere so hiking boots or good tennies are a must. There are fallen trees to climb over or crawl under, lots of bridges and mud. We had a great time. Our 4 year old only made it about half way before we had to turn back, but my 9 year old and our friends made it up to the lake where there were baby ducks and great views.

Wonder place lovely and very zen like. You can sit here and stair at the water and watch the current shift. There are portable potties that you can use, a few benches to sit on as well as a trail for jogging and biking. Great for the whole family, couples or solo.
