Perfect for a parents carrying children! We have two under three and wanted to get out today though we are all still adjusting to the altitude. Happy to find a short hike with such beautiful views.

I hiked only a very short segment close to the shoreline as it was snowing (late May!) but the water was gray and lovely. Would be a great trail for little kids.

A short easy walking for all. The view of Dillon lake from the top is so peaceful and picture perfect.

This is very quick so do it just because you're in it for the views, not the workout. It was crystal clear today and the views out over the reservoir were incredible. Kids could do this easily.

Fantastic hike with my friend from San Diego. Even though he is completely out of shape we completed the hike in a reasonable amount of time. Would recommend this hike for any level of hiker; child, novice, or fatty.
