A nice hike for our family. We saw some deer and hummingbirds. Easy enough for a 5 year old to handle.

I really liked this Trail as a resident of Summit County. This is a great Trail to bring a friend who's visiting town and likes to hike.
Take the first right turn after passing the lake to the right. You will be driving Hwy 6 south alongside Lake Dillon Reservoir to the right. Begins at the bike path so beware of bicyclists. Leads to a dirt road to the left and leaves the bike path which curves to the right. Lots of people walking this relatively flat stretch to the water treatment facility and then head back to the parking lot. I walked to the water treatment facility and let my dog play in the water. Then heading back we found the trailhead for and followed along and every .5 'mile there was a little path leading off the main path to various outlooks. This trail has numerous viewpoints and one has a few benches to sit on a view in an inlet on the Reservoir. Eventually the trail opens up to a big meadow where you can either go north and meet the main trail we took to the water treatment facility, or go southeast and about 1.5 miles further until you come out on the west side of the parking lot.

This hike is great for families. Park near the water tower. Instead of taking the first Trail I went further on to the other start/end of the Tenderfoot Mtn Trail. I followed this up the left side and saw beautiful landscapes of Lake Dillon and the marina. After the bench the views don't get any better and the trail heads up until it eventually drops back down. At the highest point there is a unmanaged trail leading up to the summit, according to what I've read. You never actually summit Tenderfoot. Right before heading back to your car, you walk down a beautiful wildflower hill landscaping the reservoir. Great spot for another pic.

Easy hike with beautiful views of Dillon and Dillon Reservoir. the trails are poorly marked so just stay on the heaviest used one. Great hike to take your dog! took about 2 hours round trip and we stopped to set up our hammocks at the top.
