This is a great easy hike to help acclimate to elevation. There are some great views of the Dillon Reservoir and the Gore Range. Right at the trailhead there is an overlook area that is popular for feeding chipmunks. A colony lives in the rocks strewn below the overlook, and a tourists feeding them peanuts. They might even take one from your hand if you're patient.

Super easy trail to do with young children, the elderly, you name it. This little loop has fantastic views for about half the time of Dillon Reservoir, and really shows you just how big the reservoir really is. If you want to save the best views for last, go counter clockwise, but if you can't wait an extra 4 minutes to see the views, then start clockwise. We even saw a few chipmunks while we were up there too!

Went on this hike with my entire extended family (ages 1-64). It was a quick and easy hike and was great to get the little ones outdoors. There are some steep cliffs around the point but also a flat walking path. The views are great from a few different scenic overlooks.
