    I gave this 5 stars not because of the lake (it was fine but a little disappointing since the trees block a lot of the view of Ypeilon mountain. I gave it 5 because of the offshoot trail to Specktacle lake about a half hour (straight up!) around the left side of Ypsilon mountain. Follow the waterfalls just west of where the Ypsilon lake trail ends. The combination of beautiful meadows, flowers everywhere, super fun rock scrambling, mountain streams, and awesome views made it one of the best hikes I've done in RMNP, and I've been hiking around here for decades. I'll give you a heads up that there's a big intimidating granite slab very near the top that is not for the faint of heart. Some of us stopped at that point. The hike is still worth it even if you stop there.

    Great views but it seems like every other time I do this hike I'm swarmed by bugs. they're only at the top- nowhere else!:-). if you like this hike you'd also like Old man Mountain near Estes Park. It's very short and very steep but a really fun rock scramble and has views almost as good as Lily Mountain.
