Fantastic trail . I'm not at my fittest but the climb was easy given the beautiful views . Yes, we started at the water tower and went left up to Tenderfoot Trail , the big electricity pylons are a bit of an eyesore amongst the surroundings . Carry on until you weave through the fence and then we went left Down the trail from there . It's beautiful and snowy weaving through the forest . It was so quiet and peaceful . I had on hiking boots and it was a little slippy underfoot but nothing too bad .
I would highly recommend this trail

Nice little hike. Great views. 75% snow covered - the rest mud at this point. Was fine with hiking boots, but trax would have been a good addition for some of the slippery spots.

Easy access, reasonable parking, easy to find and follow trail. The views were spectacular, easy weekend morning climb. This would be beautiful any time of the year probably but seeing it in late September really had great fall colors going. Expect friendly company along the trail by other hikers, dogs, etc.

Great trail, easy to follow, with views of Lake Dillon and Tenmile peak, and a great spot for fall color in mid to late September. It is now a loop trail that connects down to the road you started on, and the switchbacks down through the aspen & mixed forests are beautiful.

The parking area at the sign that says "Oro Grande Trail" is the place to start. Begin on that trail and shortly you'll see a sign for "Tenderfoot Trail" on your left.

Great trail with beautiful views! My dog and I did the new loop trail. We parked just past the water tank. Take first left and then small climb and then take right. Meander through the forest to the top of the trail. Then you come to the new fence which you need to weave through which reveals beautiful views of Lake Dillon. There are many benches from which to choose to sit and view the beauty below. Stay right at all intersections to make the loop back to the parking lot at the water tank.

They recently created a thruway, so you can do the whole loop (around 5 miles), which gives great views of Dillon Reservoir and the towns nearby. I went with my 60-year-old mom, and we had a great time climbing up to the top and descending down. The trails aren't super well marked, so be sure to keep to the well-treaded trails.
