Short and sweet. Probably wouldn’t make the trip from Denver just for this hike because it was pretty short, but would be great if hitting a couple of hikes in this area. I would rate this hike as easy. Snow makes portions slippery and it’s much colder by the water. You will need layers and gloves. Took about an hour from lake to reservoir.
