Coot Lake Trail is a 1.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Longmont, CO that features a lake. The trail is good for all skill levels offers a number of activity options. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
Lake itself is quite lovely, and trail is convenient to Boulder and Longmont areas. Path is wide, smooth, and flat, appropriate for all ability levels and many uses. Very dog friendly - though almost felt like a dog park with so many present on a crowded Sunday afternoon.
Nice easy trail! Very dog friendly, I think I was the only one without a dog. Much better parking across the street.
Not bad trail ... Good for dogs
Coot lake is a relaxing place to go for an easy walk. It seems like a nice place to fish or bring the dogs. Not much else for scenery but fall does bring some changing leaves. Heard lots of coyotes after dark so be mindful.
Lots of nature.
Great discovery of a very dog friendly Lake! Easy, graveled trail for the walk and numerous easy access points for the dog to jump in the water. We'll be making this a regular visit!
Such a beautiful, easy hike. This has been my relaxation spot for the past several years, and it is beyond beautiful at sunset. Gorgeous view of the Front Range, as well as Haystack Mountain.
A flat, well maintained gravel track that is good for running and open to dogs. Very short and not difficult at all, but a good place to jog or walk your dog in the shadow of the Rockies. Good birding in the back section, expect to see lots of red-wing blackbirds in the summer and possibly blue herons and other waterfowl.
