I did this one in summer, pretty heavily trafficked but it is nice and cozy to walk around the lake.

Went on Memorial Day and it was a great place to hang out for the day. Seeing the dam flow on the east side of trail is cool.

Very nice walk around the lake! Pretty crowded and almost didn’t find a parking spot. Path is well maintained, though and views are wonderful.

Nice little jaunt. Can be super crowded with people and vehicle traffic.

Nice walk for families. Kayaking and paddle boarding are great options as well.

Went a while back and loved it. It was such a great view with the frozen lake. Easy for anyone

Very easy. Great for small dogs that get tired easily. Still a lot of snow and lake is frozen with a lot of ice fishing.

Beautiful lake in Evergreen, CO. Very close to a couple different networks of trails and parks. I added this short lake walk to an 8 mile hike so I could mark another trail off of my list. Lots of people doing various things: fishing, bird watching, professional photography, walking, etc.

Nice short trail but unable to make the loop as a portion of it is still closed.

Wasn't able to do the loop cause the trail was partially closed on maintenance. The trail is very crowded

Couldn't do the loop. The trail was closed about halfway.

North side of the lake was closed off, that is why I gave it a 3. Great shaded hike. Cool looking dam. A lot of fowl around. After hiking we took a kayak on the lake, $4.00 fee to put your boat in the water.

Easy walking trail around the lake. This was a perfect walk for a 94 degree day. Nice breeze, beautiful views, and quite a few shady spots.

it's ok for an accessible lake near Denver. But the trails could be a bit nicer. There are parts where you're directly beneath power lines for a portion of the bike and others where the trail is literally next to the road.

Easy walk and there's usually Elk in the water this time of year. It's packed on the weekends. Not sure why Ben Wilson thought it was necessary to posts pictures of other trails on this but I'll snap some pics next time I'm there.

This is a nice easy stroll around the lake. The highlights are the wild life in and around the lake in such a populated area. The water coming over the spill way is awesome

A nice stroll around a very pretty lake. The only annoying part is the walk down the spillway and back up the other side but not a big deal. Can be very crowded but Evergreen is a great town and a great place to grab a bite to eat afterward.

Very nice an easy walking trail. The traffic along the highway is a bit noisy but still a very nice stroll.
