Great hike, amazing views looking west over Dillon Reservoir towards Breckenridge. Hiked this with my 81 year old dad.

Nice easy trail hike with some great views of the lake. Trail was easily marked and took us 2 hours to complete. You can hike the trail a lot quicker, but we stayed and took in some of the gorgeous views of the water. You won't be disappointed, enjoy!

I really liked this Trail as a resident of Summit County. This is a great Trail to bring a friend who's visiting town and likes to hike.
Take the first right turn after passing the lake to the right. You will be driving Hwy 6 south alongside Lake Dillon Reservoir to the right. Begins at the bike path so beware of bicyclists. Leads to a dirt road to the left and leaves the bike path which curves to the right. Lots of people walking this relatively flat stretch to the water treatment facility and then head back to the parking lot. I walked to the water treatment facility and let my dog play in the water. Then heading back we found the trailhead for and followed along and every .5 'mile there was a little path leading off the main path to various outlooks. This trail has numerous viewpoints and one has a few benches to sit on a view in an inlet on the Reservoir. Eventually the trail opens up to a big meadow where you can either go north and meet the main trail we took to the water treatment facility, or go southeast and about 1.5 miles further until you come out on the west side of the parking lot.
