I didn't realize the lake was closed until I was leaving....many trails without barriers leading to the lake. It was beautiful and quiet...now I know why! The map I received was pretty confusing...there are no markers on the trails to coincide with the map. Overall, I enjoyed my day hiking to Vail Lake.

the lake is closed they should have told you that before charging $5per person

I was so looking forward to doing this hike, then I drove there and the road to the lake is closed. Very dissappointed :( will try again another time.

The trails were primarily dirt roads. Trail maps did not distinguish between roads and hiking trails. Nothing special. Also, there was some occasional piece of trash on the trail. Nice views and always good to get outside, though. One cool part was a road/trail was blazed right on some ridge lines.

Lots of bike trails and beautiful views around the lake. Not much shade. some areas can be challenging.

Did the Spartan race here. Amazing hike. Beautiful view! Definitely challenging, for me at least. Can't wait to go back!!

Ran the Spartan Sprint here in 2013. It was a tough run up and down the trails and through the mud and water. Definitely need plenty of water during the hotter weather. I ran it in January and still got my butt kicked! The view from the higher elevations is awesome...well, not so much when you can't breathe and cramping in your quads! LMAO

Went over labor day weekend. Had to pay 5 bucks and sign a form to get in but worth it. Took the dam climb which looks gated off but just swing your bike around. Its a fire road for the beginning then at the damn turns into a crazy ridge line. If you do not want to walk your bike i suggest taking the single tracks instead of the dam climb because damn you'll be climbing. Not for beginners because the down hill is crazy i went on level three and had to walk down half of it. Hopefully you have a frs for that downhill because a hard tail is well.. Hard. Good luck have fun.
