“Good hike for flatlanders in their 60's”

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.

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.
