beautiful and easy trail with gorgeous views. there's no shade on the trail which didn't bother me with the cooler weather. absolutely gorgeous views and I'm only giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish it were longer. parking is well marked as well

The hike up is ok, and the path around the reservoir is blah (a graveled path; reminded me of paths down the mountain in the Denver area around bodies of water). The best part of this hike is the view overlooking Dillon Reservoir.

great hike with great views. some areas on the way up can get a little steep and not to wide. But that's like at one little part of the trail. its windy at the top so be ready but a great hike with cool views

Very easy trail that has great views of Dillon Reservoir. Short hike with a slight uphill and all downhill on the way down. The trail is quite rocky, and it’s only a loop if you walk around the reservoir, otherwise it’s an out and back. For families this is a great trail for kids, but it is not stroller friendly.

Lovely little hike with a rewarding little reservoir loop! We took our dogs and they loved jumping into the ice cold water for a bit. Conditions on this Saturday afternoon were perfect. Ran into 4 or 5 other small groups, not too crowded.

Hiked this end of January with a good amount of snow on the ground. The first part of trail was fully snow packed and safe. just a few steps of a bit of a scramble and then down to the reservoir. half the reservoir has dry ground, the other half had slightly broken trail. all in all great time to do the trail.

nice and dry even with yesterday's snow. good for runners as it's essentially a high altitude track with beautiful views that you can take as many laps as you'd like.
