Great hike!!! Saw some deer on the way back. There was a moose reported around the ponds today but we missed it. Great scenery along the river. Would definitely do it again!

Gorgeous! Nice length. Elevation changes aren’t crazy, but more gradual with some shorter, steeper areas. I couldn’t run up the scramble you will see to the left of the ridge onto the rock formation. Good excuse to sit and relax before going back.

Nice moderate hike. Easy at start, several lake views and nice waterfalls.

Amazing views at the upper lakes: definitely go further from the upper mohawk lake. I started at 05:30 and was alone at the top, when I got back down around 11 there were a lot of people. The trail up to the lower mohawk lake has a lot of small side trails and it wasn't always clear to me if i was going te right way, so would recommend having the trail offline to be sure (I forgot). Also: I saw many people going up the 4WD road from the parking lot, but you can go on the spruce creek trail through the forest.

Completely uphill! A very nice workout with some of the most amazing views I’ve ever seen in Colorado. Be prepared to work but it’s so worth it, and not too long either! Also extremely accessible if you don’t want to travel far from the Dillon/Frisco area.

9 lakes on the trail. make sure to go to lakes above upper mohawk, favorite of the all

Was a very nice trail. Took spruce trail up and it was very easy. After you get to the road from the trail the fun starts. At some points I thought this was a more difficult trail as you are climbing up a rock face. We left around 9:30am, put up our hammocks for about 45 min at the lower lake and got back to the car around 2:15pm. Definitely a challenge but the view is worth it!

Excellent trail. I would consider it moderate to difficult. The lakes were low so the waterfall wasn’t that great. But overall it is worth the effort. Something i learned is to take spruce creek trail from the trailhead to avoid walking up the jeep trail from the parking lot. Saw mt goats at the lake along with a beautiful view.

Absolutely loved this hike. As stated, after the first few inclines it gets easier and is a beautiful diverse trail. The views are amazing. Of course it is peak foliage right now so a photographers paradise. It is my favorite hike in the area. Up there with Mohawk lakes and McCullough Gulch trails. A must.

The highlight for my four kids was feeding the chipmunks. The views were also spectacular! Next time I’m bringing lunch as there are picnic tables at the top. We went on a Sunday so there was a lot of traffic and a lot of kids feeding the chipmunks. Please remember to approach the chipmunks quietly as to not scare them all away from others who are enjoying the chipmunks. This was a favorite and highly recommend for families.

Did this hike 3 days ago and it was one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever done. The ridge was beautiful and we actually walked about 1.5 mile along south spur. The fall colors and views were magnificent. Watched a marmot for quite awhile. Splendid!!!

Absolutely stunning views and very fun hike up to the top!

Loved it, challenging (especially w/wind) but easy down!! Beautiful!!

Awesome but long

Great hike! I got kinda lost the 1st time. I went past Rainbow Lake on Peak Trail & it was leading me 2 Breckenridge. Not a lot of signs 2 keep u on track. I ran into a runner & his dog & turned back. I found it the following week & hiked Mt. Victoria & then Royal. It took about 4 hours but I stopped 2 read so was a 5 hour trip..fun stuff!

Always a beautiful hike! The views at the top are amazing, why we love living in Colorado. Moderate climb, and worth doing many times.

Not many aspens but very nice hike without lots of people

Got to the trail head at sunrise and there were 6 cars in the lot. when I got back down the lot was full and cars waiting for spots. Nice and brisk at the start, needed a jacket, but once the sun started hitting the mountainside, little by little ended up in shorts and a tank top. Initial start is up hill but nothing real strenuous and then it levels out and is a very relaxing walk. Saw a bull moose in the first mile of the trail off in the willows. Nice fall smells and colors. Enjoy!

Beautiful hike. Not too strenuous once you get past the initial incline. Great fall colors, beautiful stream that the trail intersects with often. Recommended.

It's a long one from the 2WD parking lot, but definitely worth it still. If you have 4WD, I suggest going up at least a little way.

Definitely make sure that you stop by Mayflower Lake bc it's off spruce creek trail but only by about 50 meters, so it's easily worth it.

Mohawk Lake is absolutely gorgeous--the water is a deep blue. Keep going tho and there are 4 more lakes above it. Above Mohawk is the first time you'll really feel like you're really out there. You hop above treeline right after Mohawk Lake. We went in the fall and the colors were tremendous.

Started at 5a.m. on a Friday, was all alone until I got to the lower lake but no one was at any of the 5 lakes past the lower one which was nice (they were much bluer than the first lake). Last lake didn't have a defined trail to it. Cool mining history, trail is deceivingly flat in beginning. Parking lot was full when leaving around 10a.m. Unfortunately there were lots of dog poop bags, toilet paper, and white people.

Moose in the lake this afternoon. Trail is rocky and steep in places, especially right before you get to the lake. Our 77 year old patriarch made. Hike now for the best fall colors.

Awesome hike! Worth it to go all the way to the upper Mohawk lake. We had trouble finding the trail near the end but people on the trail were very helpful!

Great hike! I thought the main attraction would be the mining camp, but the views from the right hand trail summit were even more amazing. It’s a tiring but short climb to the summit from the mining camp. The fall colors are amazing right now and will only get better over the next week— definitely a great time of year to check it out.

A good light hike to get acclimated! Pretty views and lots of adorable chipmunks.

Autumn colors are coming in and it looks beautiful. Excellent place for a backpacking trip without the crowds.

Great hike with good views. A little confusing to find a trail, especially if going from the 2nd Ave. parking spot, which saves a half mile of bike path walking.

Used it to acclimate myself for doing a 14er two days later.

Since I’m from Wisconsin!

Easy hike, great views! Fed chipmunks and found geocache.
