Hiked on Sunday 10/4/20. If you hike this trail, start clockwise and turn around halfway through! The opposite side of the lake hardly has a real trail and requires all kinds of bushwhacking and sinking into hidden mud piles. No fun. But, the other side of the lake is gorgeous, albeit muddy/slippery in spots and this is an awesome stop if you’re driving down 91 and want to pull off! You are right off the highway but it’s a great spot to stretch your legs and is still peaceful once you hike in a bit away from the noise of the cars. Lots of people fishing and hanging out. Nice spot!

Wonderful trail. There was a crew filming a Chevy commercial in the south parking lot so we parked in the north one. Worked out perfectly because this trail should definitely be done clockwise. The north side of the trail is along the shoreline and quite muddy but our dogs loved it. The south side is a nice walk through a pine forest. Highly recommended.

Such amazing views. It was almost two types of trails from one side of the lake to another. Kind of muddy in areas but good overall!

We visited earlier this summer (mid August) and was such a lovely respite from the Denver heat. Absolutely perfect place to bring a picnic.

Beautiful hike all the way around the lake. Glad I wore pants, as others advised. Plenty of parking since there’s actually two lots - on both sides of the lake off 91.

Great views all around! Yes it was a bit muddy in places and partially overgrown on the northern side, but otherwise it is really nice! Long pants recommended for the brush.

So lovely. Just a bit of mud and brush at the beginning. We saw an ermine around 9 am.

Lovely trail and definitely go clockwise around as you will benefit from excellent views. Plenty of shade, some wildflowers, little traffic the first section and only moderate on the last half. Not buggy but some mud. Enjoy!

Fun, short hike. Very wet and muddy in some places. Be prepared to take your shoes off once you're back to your vehicle.

Great leisurely hike with magnificent views around the lake. Wild flowers blooming. Narrow trail and grown up a little in parts but no trouble. No cell service..

A little muddy and overgrown in places, but still a beautiful, relatively low traffic trail today! Little overcast too so the temperature was perfect!

Great trail for all abilities. Took the advice to go clockwise & was not disappointed. Beautiful views & return second half in the woodland forest. Our crew included 9 years old to 78 years old and all enjoyed!

It’s a beautiful, easy trail with fantastic views. Perfect for a day when you want to get out but aren’t up for a more strenuous hike. Parts of it are very muddy, which wasn’t a huge deal, you could step around most of it. We were there mid day, saw a dozen or so other people. The biggest negative is the part of the trail that runs along the highway, that connects the two parking lots. It’s only about a 5 min walk though.

Recommend doing the loop clockwise to better enjoy the view. Muddy and overgrown in spots. Lots of folks fishing and setting off in kayaks / SUP on the south side (especially later in the morning). There were a few spots where we had to lift our 45 lb. dog to help her over fallen branches or rocks... probably not the case for most dogs.

Nice easy level trail with several areas that were overgrown and other spots were muddy. Trail is very easy to follow and private property line is very well marked. South side of the lake is more shaded.
