I do this “hike” all of the time with my 3 year old and now 1 year old. It is super easy, beautiful views, and fun for kids (especially if you bring duck food to feed the ducks. That is the highlight).

loved! we took the added hike to Twin Lake which was a bit steep for my kids (age 7, age 10), but they hung on there and we loved reaching the lake. on the way back down to Silver Lake, we saw a 2 point buck & two doe. Gorgeous dusk hike!

I'm a very over weight non-hiker, and forgot to put my sneakers on as well... this was easy peezy. Very, very busy.

Great little stroll and nice for out-of-town family and friends who are getting acclimated to the altitude. Nice to do on a weekday when it’s a lot less crowded!

Great trail for families. Our 4 yr old walked it with no problems. There were only a few snow patches that were easy to cross.

This is a beautiful, easy trail. I recommend a walking stick when there’s melting snow on the path. I sank over a foot deep a few times and there were some slippery slopes.

It's beautiful up there but the loop trail is still covered in snow which we were surprised since it is June. The drive is still worth it though because it's so pretty.

This trail was a nice loop. It was covered with snow but was very enjoyable and picturesque. Definitely recommend!

Beautiful, easy, leisurely walk. October 19 packed snow, icy in the morning and muddy in the afternoon.

Packed slush and ice on most of the path today, October 13. Lots of parents and kids slipping around. Some puddles in places. Bring boots with good tread or microspikes. Your feet will get wet this week. Gorgeous and sunny today, a beautiful walk as the lake begins to freeze.

Really pretty lake, especially with the aspens changing colors. Easy loop, great for kids and we will head back tomorrow with our grandson to head up to Solitude Lake from here.

Pleasant easy stroll. Path is easy enough for strollers and wheelchairs. The boardwalk is fun. So are the Pokestops and gyms ;)
