Gorgeous hike with small river along side. The end is rewarding.

The trail was gorgeous after 3-4 feet of fresh snow the week before. The mid-Jan hike was our introduction to Silverthorne and the altitude. The weather was perfect and the views even better for such an accessible little 3.5 mile hike.

Great tail for a first-timer! Well-packed snow made for a very obvious trail. If we'd felt more adventurous we could have headed up the hill, but we opted to keep it fairly easy this time. Puppy enjoyed it tremendously, too!

The best hike of my life!!! The last quarter mile is tough so pace yourself. Well worth it once you get there. Loved the chipmunks along the boardwalk at the top, they were very entertaining.

good trail.

We went hiking with cleats due to the heavy snow. Path was well kept and the lake, which is usually surrounded by hikers taking photos, was ours to enjoy alone.

Views are amazing

dogs are currently not allowed and the locals are pretty serious about enforcing

Nice hike but pretty steep

Starts steep. Somewhat long, but can be done in a half day. Beautiful area that many locals even know exists in their back yards. Reservoirs are crystal clear.

Beautiful. Enjoyed immensely because I was prepared and had the right equipment. Shoe spikes, walking poles, warm cloths and water are musts if you want to reduce risk of injury and fully enjoy this trail in the winter.

Hiked during winter and trail ended due to unpacked snow. Decent hike if looking for something to do in Frisco area although it maybe better when snow is melted.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Go early, as the lot fills up.

This was a quiet hike where I didn't see many people which can be nice some times. Not too strenuous.
