Super overcast the day I drove to this lake. Did not hike trail. Fog rolling in over trees looked spooky and stunning - just in time for Halloween!

An easy trail that we have hike 4 of the last 5 years I've been to RMNP. it has a hidden gem. If you follow the entrance to the upper trail that is on the west end of the lake you will come to a fork about 100 yards in. Follow the rope to your left and it will take you to a nice overlook of the east end of Moraine Park. This side trip is well traveled and short, not not shown on maps.

If you're looking for a quick easy stroll with some GREAT photo opportunities, this one's for you. I did the lake and the ridge, well worth it.

The loop trail around Lily Lake is flat and easy to follow, making it a great choice for folks who don't have the time or physical ability to take on RMNP's tougher trails. Lily Lake is gorgeous, especially when surrounded by wildflowers in the summer.
