Directions from Estes Park: Go south on Hwy 7 about 5.8 miles. Just before the 6 mile marker there is a small pull-off area by the trailhead sign. Be careful because parking space is limited and the pull-off sits just off busy Hwy 7.

Lilly mountain summit has very spectacular views! The sign near the TH says 2 miles. I actually thought it was a long 2 miles with its nearly 1500' elevation gain and loss..surprised to see trail guides stated 3.8 round trip.
some minor scrambling to an exposed summit....
BTW Dogs are allowed! So all trails into needs an update on dogs.. go do it .. an overlooked great little hike

Beautiful view from the top! The trail is very well maintained, it's just a little tricky to find the best way to the very top. Lots of scrambling involved.

Started at 11:30am and got to the top at 1pm with plenty of short breaks. We were at the top by ourselves for ~30 mins and got back to our car by 3:30pm. Definitely took us longer than expected!
