Beautiful walking paved pathway around Estes Lake. Beautiful scenery on a clear day. Unfortunately it was cloudy on the day I went and sleeting before I finished. The side around the Power Plant and power lines is not so appealing. Saw 4 elk on 5/24/20.

Watch out for the back half by the road if you have a pup.
