Explore the most popular lake trails near Broomfield with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Not a bad little stroll. Easy walk and connects to many of the other trails in the area. It’s great for a dog walk or just to get out for some fresh air without a substantial hike. Saw a coyote on the trail in the morning. Make sure you read the signs on what to do if you encounter one.

The paths leading to the trail (as of today) are slightly flooded. There is a spot to cross the water with logs but otherwise you have to puddle jump. If you try to bring your dog, you're gonna have a gross dog afterward.

It is very beautiful, highly trafficked. I prefer more solitude.

Good for seeing ducks and other birds. Nice view view of the mountains.

Great for a quick 1 mile trail. PortaPotty, benches, dog waste stations, dock to see water/ ducks, birds and saw a dad fishing with his kids. Easy fir dogs and kids.

What a fabulous trail. Water, nature, Mountain View’s, mixed terrain and other people here and there. It was a fabulous 4 mike hike (3 times around) ...sunny and blue skies in February

I have ridden my bike on this trail dozens of times and love it!

good walkabout. dogs abound. lots of bikes. awesome bmx park/trail adjacent. nice
scenery.

Saw prairie dogs, coyotes and a snowy owl!! I ventured into Standley Lake Park at the west of the trail and it is beautiful! They have paddle craft rentals, tipi and camping and lots of nature programs!

We go all the time with our dog. Love everything about it minus the parking (not always enough) and crowds unless you go at off times. Beautiful place and you can see farm animals :)

Kinda barren and close to busy roads but a decent place to relax during lunch break.

This is one of my favorite places for a longer run. The scenery changes a lot along the way keeping it interesting.

Pretty lake. Too easy of a trail.

I would call this a utility road. There is no view of the lake until you are almost to the end. We did see a coyote. It would be much more enjoyable on a bike.

It was a great scenic trail, a little windy on the day I went with my dog. A great experience though. Very easy all skill levels appropriate.

There are many different trails that you can take and all of them are beautiful!

It's a pretty spot to fish and walk the trail. We come here often. There are usually a few people here however it is calm and enjoyable. Beautiful sunsets!

Easy trail that is also great for horseback riding around.

good place for dogs

This trail ran directly behind my old house near Standley Lake and I used to hike it all the time. It's not really a "hike" more of just a walk in the park type trail running behind houses, schools, and some open spaces.

Love this lake and miss living right next to it.

I take my dog here in the fall and spring, it's a great and easy trail. I don't come during the summer because there is hardly any shade at all for most of the trail. The lake is beautiful and there's a cute little farm just off the trail.

Very nice hike. I live in an apartment complex to the West of Stearns Lake. Preparing for backpacking trip in Beartooth Mountains in MT. I hiked out last evening at 7:30 and went around the lake (very peaceful and best kept secret kind of lake), then kept going to the underpass at NW Parkway. Turned around and got back at 10:30 PM. Very peaceful and no one on the trail. No moon, but still well lit with light pollution. Only mammals to fear are prairie dogs and rabbits. Coyotes won't bother you because they're fat.
