Carter Lake Reservoir - Sundance Trail is a 6 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Berthoud, CO that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels offers a number of activity options. Horses are also able to use this trail.
Note: there is a park fee of $7 per car; it is primarily a recreation area for boats and horses. Nice and shady, and fairly flat, if rocky. We were on the south end, there, you have to walk through the camp sites to get to the trail. Lots of rocks for small kids to throw in the lake.
I've hiked this trail sence i was little, great for a quick and moderatly easy hike. Lots of shade along the way if its a hotter day, and beautiful landscape.
easy scenic trail
Trail follows along the west side of Carter lake. Easy 3 mile hike from North to South ends.
