it's fun and easy, doesn't take long. even kids do it.. but at the end the lake isn't too impressive and is usually crowded.

Great hike. Very steep but well worth it.

Snow and icy right now...few areas need traction devices to be safe! Beautiful views, as always, and a nice place to exercise your dog ;-))

12/28/17. Steep but short trail, snow was packed in some spots but snowshoes helped a ton. Amazing views!

Part of Peaks Trail 45. Leisurely hike right out of Frisco. 100 yards in and you forget you're so close to town. Meanders from Zack Stop at the end of 2nd to the far side of Rainbow Lake (pond) where it connects to several other peaks trails or loops back to the recreational pathway.
In the winter it is still well traveled. Expect to run into other local hikers, cross country skiers and plenty of off-leash labradors.

Fabulous views! My fiancé and I hiked this trail in December to see the sunset. The trip took us about 50 minutes up, we spent about 20 minutes at the top taking in the view and the trip down was about 30 minutes. Google maps will direct you to the trailhead but there is no parking, park at the Frisco kayak park at the highway turnoff. The snow is packed down and the footing was a little slippery on the way down but well worth the trip if you’re in Frisco.

Good fun trail. Covered in light snow but not slippery

Great short hike. A little icy in the winter when there is no snow. But awesome for dogs and a beautiful view of the lake.

Awesome Trail! It is very steep and slippery on the way up, but the view is like no other. I would totally recommend it. The views are amazing and the feeling of accomplishing it make it feel worth while. It took us just over 2 hours to complete and the entire trip is just over 3 miles. We are beginner hikers and even we completed it. Highly recommended.

Definitely a cool trail but definitely not a winter hike. Managed to do it yesterday but probably took a few hours longer than it should have. Not mad about it at all, just sore from walking in unpacked snow most of the way. Incredible setting where the lakes are situated, which were frozen, just don't do it out of season unless you want a real good workout.

Nice, easy trail that can be done with the family. Saw a couple with their toddler hiking this one. A snow the night before made this one a little slick in some spots. A few small streams to cross and a nice view of the lake at the top. Continue around the lake to the right to begin the Peaks Trail if you want to to adventure further. Also looks to be a common mountain bike path so keep your head up.

Awesome trail. Sure it's steep but you gotta work for the view. Keep going all the way to the end and up the little mountain to find the best view. Highly recommended hike.

Huffa puffa. It was AWESOME!! Make sure you go all the way to the end of the trail at the precipice for the best views!

Certainly a workout...especially hiking with a 2 year old on your back. The views were incredible and will certainly do this trail again.

Excellent trail conditions, dry but very steep. Very few switch backs.

Beautiful and dog friendly!

Excellent hike in October. Good work out for our level - took us about 3 hours.

Hiked here Thursday September 28th. I got a bit hot on the way to the summit so I took off my pink jacket (gloves and beanie in pocket) and left it on a branch off the trail. Upon descending approx 45 mins later my jacket was gone. If you happen to have it please email me. Thanks.
