Tenderfoot Mountain is a 2.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Dillon, Colorado that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is accessible from June until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
I really loved this trail. Beautiful views of the reservoir the whole way up. Enough elevation gain to begin to get your heart pumping, while still being relaxing. Our dogs loved it. Would be a great option for visitors. Trail is west facing so it was still very dry on a sunny day in November, where there was plenty of snow lingering down on Main Street. Highly recommended!
Nice, relaxing hike with beautiful views!
Nice and manageable for a beginner!
Great little hike today. the views were very nice. Loved seeing the fall colors. We didn't do the whole trail since we didn't start till 3:30pm. Would recommend!
I live in Dillon and look up at this mountain every day....finally got to the peak. Good luck finding the survey marker for the summit! Beautiful views and not a soul on the trail after the "trail ends" sign. Easy hike and rewarding views of Keystone Resort and Lake Dillon.
My dog & I totally enjoyed this trail this morning. Beautiful wildflowers in open areas and a few benches/rocks to take in the view. As other reviewers have said, there's no "wow" at the end. Still a great trail for acclimating and easy enough for all levels. Don't miss the all wood pole teepee mid trail - a novelty for any kids on the hike!
*Directional note to trailhead: From Hwy 6 East, turn LEFT on Dillon Dr at light at top of hill. Then take an immediate right onto CR 51. Parking is just past end of paved road.
Great view for such an easy hike
It's a great quick hike and the view of Dillon Lake is spectacular, it's my new favorite spot to just sit and look at the view
Beautiful. Lots of wildflowers.
Good morning hike with kids. Great views of Dillon, lots of wildflowers. About 30% shade.
It was a sunny day and since there was barely any shade, it was a warm hike. The directions and map made me question where I was going so I posted a pic of where I parked and walked to the trailhead. Great views of the lake. Amazing variety of flora.
Simple, easy trail with stunning views of Lake Dillon and surrounding mountains!
Nice fairly easy hike. Narrow trail with a few rocks in the trail. You got to watch for. Very little shade. Most of the trail is totally exposed to the sun. Nice views of Lake Dillon.
Nice easy hike with great views of Lake Dillon. A good hike to use for getting acclimated to the altitude.
Beautiful view of the mtn range and lake Dillon however there is nothing climatic at the top.
Nice easy trail with beautiful views of the mountains and lake Dillon.
