Beautiful trail!

Great Workout!! Wear hiking boots, lots of loose gravel, saw many tennis shoes warriors fall down on the decline. Bring lunch, eat on top!

Steep hike up but not for long. Great view. Different topography. I'd take a picnic up there and hang. Fast way to escape the town considering how close it was.

Was up here yesterday, 11/6/2016. It snowed gently off and on all day, but was not too cold and easily passable without snow shoes. Beautiful hike, stunning views.

Switchbacks are tricky and rough at times, but the view is worth it !

Very easy beginning, half way up very steep. Gorgeous views of Dillon Lake and Frisco from top.

Not too bad for the first mile, but the last mile is all uphill with no relief. Expect to stop every few feet for a breath if you're not acclimated. Rewarding views from the top of i70 and Frisco.

Short hike to the lake, with lots of possibilities to continue on for a longer hike or bike ride.

Go up to Eccles pass. My gps told me it was 10.8 miles RT but It's worth it for the views! One of the prettiest hikes I've ever done. Completed it August 14, 2016 and it was perfect wildflower season

Nice hike for out of town guests. You can also access it via the Mt Royal start and then cut over -- just know the start of the Mt Royal hike is more challenging. Especially beautiful in the fall with the aspens! I wrote more about it here: https://goo.gl/cgLgQP

I love this hike! Especially beautiful in the fall. More hike details + pics here: https://goo.gl/PpCpm4

Easy to find, easy hike (not sure why this is listed as moderate, I'm a novice hiker and I think an average person could do this in tennis shoes with no poles or gear very easily). Nice lake view at the end, and streams visible many places along the path. Great first trail if you're coming on vacation from lower elevations.

It's beautiful in fall, it's nice and short, and is a great trail.

It was a great hike to do with kids. Just the right distance before complaining sets in. Not too many steep spots, and plenty to look at. Took a 11 yr old, 9 yr old, 4 yr old and carried a newborn. We saw great fall colors on the way to the lake.
