Great family hike close to Breck. Not easy, not hard, just right for the the fam. It will test you in spots. Started at Spruce Creek trailhead. Round trip to lower Mohawk Lake with a lunch stop along the way took 6 hours. Had two youngsters in tow but they made it just fine. Really pretty views, lakes, mountains, waterfalls, mountain goats, you name it. Crowded but it’s like 5 minutes from Breckenridge so that’s part of the deal. Still worth it 100%. Just go early.
