A pleasant walk around Lake Estes offers views of the valley. There are many benches available around the lake to enjoy the panoramic views.

Very nice trail perfect for biking, walking, or running. Well maintained and easy to follow. Gorgeous views all the way around.

Beware of elk calving area . . . signs ;-) They were posted as "No Dogs Allowed", but then poop bag stations were all along the way. Dogs can swim in Lake Estes and there is a great dog park with agility course along the south side of the lake (technically this if just off the trail). Just walk through a tunnel to get there. A little too paved for my liking, but still pretty and fun.

A nice walk to do other than "shopping" on your day off from hiking or after a hike. Views of mountains, visit the marina, check out the dam, go by Wapiti Meadows where elk may spend the night, and possibly, as we did, have elk on the trail.

I wouldn't consider this a 'hike'. Very easy walk and great views of the mountains if you can see past the electrical towers.
