It was a nice trail and the lily pad lake was neat. But the foliage wasn't crazy green, in fact, a lot of the area looks like it was burned in a fire 10 years or so ago. But luckily mostly at the beginning of the trail.

Worth going and not intense, but not the most beautiful for the drive out.

Not a bad trail. Definitely steeper and rockier than some reviews suggest. It was nice and wooded, keeping the trail cool even at the end of August. The lake was smaller and less impressive than I expected. Still a nice hike that I would do again.

Fairly easy trail with a beautiful lake at the end and beautiful wooded scenery as you hike. The foot bridges and rocky terrain were favorites for the kids. However, we had read it was just over 3 miles out and back and per our fit bit, it was actually closer to 4.5 miles which was a bit too long for our 3 and 5 year old.

Great hike with beautiful views of Dillon Reservoir. Hiked with wife, 5yo and 2yo. Kids were wiped out at the end. A little rocky in some spots which was hard for the kids but they loved the foot bridges.

Perfect hike for my family... the views along the trail are stunning! My 12 year old and 9 year old weren't the least bit challenged... very kid friendly.

Nice, easy hike. Was a bit more steep than I imagined, but a good easy exercise. Pretty lake at the end to rest/have lunch. Can tell the chipmunks are fed often because they were overly friendly, but otherwise enjoyable.
