Easy, especially good for kids. Feeding the chipmunks seeds was a highlight. Very scenic in several places.

Very easy. We did this at sunset and I recommend doing it then. It's very short but the views were really cool over lake Dillon, Frisco, Silverthorne, and Dillon. There are a couple picnic tables if you're looking to do that.

Go clockwise from parking lot for amazing view within the first 200 feet.. Watch for the chipmunks everywhere!

I thought it was super easy with a killer view! Lots of picture spots and with it being about 1/2 a mile long, I feel like I could bring out-of-towners here for sure. Highly recommended it if you're looking for something quick, easy, and pretty.

Beautiful views of Lake Dillon, easy enough for kids/grandparents, also wheelchair accessible. There was a man made teepee off the trail which was cool to see - not sure how long that will be there. Highly recommend this hike!

Great hike for elderly parents or someone on a wheel chair. Also good for small kids. Go counterclockwise for a gentle nice decline for most if the hike, then a short very manageable uphill. Bring sunflower seeds for the chipmunks on the overlook and they will eat out of your hand. Ok, not so wilderness purist, but fun.
