I have taken my children on this hike many times. My children started hiking this on there own when they were as young as two years old. It’s a nice mid level hike that the whole family can do together. Pretty views as always in “Colorado’s Playground .”

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 activity.

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 one case a downed tree. There are several rocky areas and many, many exposedvtree roots but these things remind you that you are on a hike, not a walk.

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 water and snacks if you have little ones with you. We spent about 2.5 hours on the trail. There are two beautiful lakes at the turn around point. One covered in lily pads (as advertised) and one clear, still lake with lots of ducks and dragonflies. The only downside of this hike was the limited parking. We got to the trail head around 10 and had to make several laps before a spot freed up.
