Beautiful short trail. Perfect sunny day. Snow was really packed making it icy in some places but not bad at all.

Beautiful quick hike! We did it in March and probably should have worn yaktrax. I definitely will do it again!

its a nice little trail with amazing views. its a super easy walk with minimal elivation change. its a great walk for someone who's just gotten to the altitude from sea level. only 0.6 miles long its great for the entire family. the only down side to the trail is winter conditions can make it hard to get to if you dont have 4x4 or snow tires.

In the beginning it looks rough, keep going. It mellows out and has some amazing views. I hiked this leisurely in four and a half hours with a nice break at the final view at the top.

Took about an hour total, stopping for many pictures along the way. The snow on the trail is packed down which makes for an easy hike. Not steep or strenuous at all! Beautiful views and many spots to capture them!

Fantastic trail . I'm not at my fittest but the climb was easy given the beautiful views . Yes, we started at the water tower and went left up to Tenderfoot Trail , the big electricity pylons are a bit of an eyesore amongst the surroundings . Carry on until you weave through the fence and then we went left Down the trail from there . It's beautiful and snowy weaving through the forest . It was so quiet and peaceful . I had on hiking boots and it was a little slippy underfoot but nothing too bad .
I would highly recommend this trail

Nice little hike. Great views. 75% snow covered - the rest mud at this point. Was fine with hiking boots, but trax would have been a good addition for some of the slippery spots.

Great for a short walk

The first half mile had me wondering if this was going to be worth it. It definitely was. The views along the way are amazing.

beautiful views from this very short trail. Definitely worth stopping here

Beautiful views of Dillon Lake, Ten Mile Range and Gore Range. Thanks to the review below, we did the full loop through the woods. 4.1 miles total. 633 feet of elevation gain. Trail comes out .6 miles up the road from parking area.

Short, easy walk with beautiful views!

So pretty! The snow-capped peaks gleaming above Lake Dillon, the beautiful blue Colorado skies and bright sunlight make this trail a quintessential must-do!

Loved this trail! It was absolutely gorgeous.

Went up for a quick sunset and was happy with the views. Didn’t have to hike far to get a great view of the valley.

LOVED this trail! It was beautiful from the moment you stepped onto the trail. Aspens were in full glory all the way to Lily Pad Lake. There were plenty of beautiful vistas to enjoy and the creek cross over was a pleasant treat. It wasn't too hard or too easy...a bit steep at the beginning, but then it levels out to a moderate incline with occasional flat sections. Good trail for kids. the lake at the top is always lovely.

Great trail! It starts out in an incredible stand of Aspens that were at the height of their fall colors. Throughout the hike the trees were amazing. We went the day after a 12" snow, so the trail was a bit soupy and there were a lot of downed trees. We are from the Midwest, so we haven't seen the aspens in their fall colors before, and this trail was an amazing indoctrination!

Up to the bench/overlook and back is a good quick hike, took us around 2 hours at a relaxed pace. Lots of aspens so it was a great fall hike. Like everyone says the first section is steep enough to get the heart rate up even if youre acclimated, but the pain is over quickly and the trail snakes in and out of the woods for some nice shade and leaf peepin' opportunities.

Not a "hike", but a nice pretty stroll. Great fir pictures!!

Nice hike, beautiful view overlooking lake in Frisco. Two and half hours with frequent photo stops. Most of the incline is at the beginning before it forks to Lily Pad lake.

Easy access, reasonable parking, easy to find and follow trail. The views were spectacular, easy weekend morning climb. This would be beautiful any time of the year probably but seeing it in late September really had great fall colors going. Expect friendly company along the trail by other hikers, dogs, etc.

Great trail, easy to follow, with views of Lake Dillon and Tenmile peak, and a great spot for fall color in mid to late September. It is now a loop trail that connects down to the road you started on, and the switchbacks down through the aspen & mixed forests are beautiful.

The parking area at the sign that says "Oro Grande Trail" is the place to start. Begin on that trail and shortly you'll see a sign for "Tenderfoot Trail" on your left.

Great trail with beautiful views! My dog and I did the new loop trail. We parked just past the water tank. Take first left and then small climb and then take right. Meander through the forest to the top of the trail. Then you come to the new fence which you need to weave through which reveals beautiful views of Lake Dillon. There are many benches from which to choose to sit and view the beauty below. Stay right at all intersections to make the loop back to the parking lot at the water tank.

The first half mile or so is pretty intense but after that it definitely flattens out. This would be a great hike to do in late Sept or October because there are a lot of aspens on trail.

Nice wildflowers. Good variety of trees. Views of Frisco. It's a little rocky and steep at the beginning but not too bad. The lake is pretty. My main complaint is that it is too short- about 1.5 hrs round trip including 15 minutes rest.

Less dangerous than mountain biking, amirite Ahmed?? Very difficult start for the .5-1 mile with steep incline but after that you have great tree cover and impressive views. I'd recommend to inexperienced hikers that are looking for a relative quick hike but a bit of a challenge. Keep going past the listed marker on the AllTrails map to get a better view a .5 mile or so higher up the trail.

They recently created a thruway, so you can do the whole loop (around 5 miles), which gives great views of Dillon Reservoir and the towns nearby. I went with my 60-year-old mom, and we had a great time climbing up to the top and descending down. The trails aren't super well marked, so be sure to keep to the well-treaded trails.

Ok. So the first .5 - 1 mile, you'll wonder what the hell you got yourself into: It is a steep, quick climb and rocky to boot. Get past that, and you're in the forest on a level, comfortable dirt trail. You can catch glimpses of the city and mountain views between the trees. Around 2.5 miles you'll find a gorgeous outlook where you can stop, catch your breath, and have some water. I went 3 miles up and didn't reach the peak. I'm hoping I can go back and see the view from the top.
