great hike. we had a 4 yo in our group and he had no problem with the hike, but we did take a few short breaks. we stopped at one of the lakes to skip stones (kids favorite part). tons of mosquitos EVERYWHERE! bring bug spray.

Not sure why the location is given as River Bend Park, as that is in Palisade. Lost Lake trail is up on the Grand Mesa near Mesa Lakes. Very pretty hike, which I rate as Easy, shady and best traveled weekdays. Bug spray needed, bring camera!

Have hiked this a few times and have enjoyed myself every time!! The lake is down this year, but remains breathtakingly beautiful!!

Beautiful hike! The lake wasn’t the best for fishing, but the hike was amazing!

Nice little hike. The mosquitos were out in full force though. Waded into the lake at the end to cool off a bit. We ended parking near the shoreline trail because parking wasn’t clear for this trail, then walked over to meet up with Lost Lake trail. Overall enjoyable!

Just a breathtaking, peaceful hike. Very little traffic. Bring your fishing pole cause the trout are jumping.

Super easy and fun hike. I was in the shade the whole time, it's not to steep. It's great for kids and dogs, and if you feel like bringing a fishing rod I saw some jumping around.
