A little confusing to find the trailhead. You park in a lot that says Oro Grande trail but if you head up the trail for a few minutes you come to the trailhead for Tenderfoot. Very nice hike, beautiful views of the lake and a couple of lookout points along the way. Pretty much a gradual ascent all the way up and the trail is in good shape.

you'll find parking near an old jeep road/4-wheeler trail. Follow the "road" for about 2-3 min then you'll reach the trailhead. Amazing hike. The best outlook is about 1/2 up and there are benches to rest and admire the panoramic view.

Went on a family hike in early May. Our 4 year old was able to make it all the way to the top without too much trouble. Outstanding views of Lake Dillon.

I really loved this trail. Beautiful views of the reservoir the whole way up. Enough elevation gain to begin to get your heart pumping, while still being relaxing. Our dogs loved it. Would be a great option for visitors. Trail is west facing so it was still very dry on a sunny day in November, where there was plenty of snow lingering down on Main Street. Highly recommended!

Great little hike today. the views were very nice. Loved seeing the fall colors. We didn't do the whole trail since we didn't start till 3:30pm. Would recommend!

I live in Dillon and look up at this mountain every day....finally got to the peak. Good luck finding the survey marker for the summit! Beautiful views and not a soul on the trail after the "trail ends" sign. Easy hike and rewarding views of Keystone Resort and Lake Dillon.

My dog & I totally enjoyed this trail this morning. Beautiful wildflowers in open areas and a few benches/rocks to take in the view. As other reviewers have said, there's no "wow" at the end. Still a great trail for acclimating and easy enough for all levels. Don't miss the all wood pole teepee mid trail - a novelty for any kids on the hike!
*Directional note to trailhead: From Hwy 6 East, turn LEFT on Dillon Dr at light at top of hill. Then take an immediate right onto CR 51. Parking is just past end of paved road.
