    I’m sure this has been written in other reviews, but although the hike features seriously gorgeous views of lakes, rivers, mountains and of course the mill itself, it is moderately to heavily trafficked with off-roading motorists. That means stepping off to the side of the trail every few minutes to let someone pass, and if you have a dog, keeping a tight leash around bends and narrow sections of the trail. It also means that you should not be expecting a “hiking trail” so much as a rocky dirt road.

    Traffic from motorists can be avoided by getting an early start (around sunrise) to make it there and back to the trailhead with few interruptions, or go on a week day if possible (I’ve hiked this trail on a few separate occasions and found this to be accurate).

    The hike is definitely worth doing! It is very picturesque and there are several beautiful pit stops to take along the way. Just do yourself the courtesy of going at an off time!

    Nice easy walk around a lake at the center of a super cute neighborhood. Did this with our parents who aren’t hikers. Lovely area for a walk! Water is crystal clear. Went on a Saturday and watched paragliders taking off from the mountains behind the lake!

    Can’t tell you how many times we’ve done this hike! We bring all of our out-of-state visitors there ages 23-60+. We’ve visited in every season and will continue to go back! Also close to downtown Breckenridge.

    Great, quick go-to trail for hiking in the front range! Dogs loved it too!
