Great hike to bring your furry friends along! The views are wonderful, especially from the ridge trail. The gravel road was mostly clear of snow, but once you turn off on the ridge trail, the snow get a little deep. Great views!

great scenery. part of the ridge was closed but there is light trail that works around.

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

Outstandingly beautiful trail, but seriously gusty/dangerous winds at the summit. I do not recommend hiking it alone, as I needed to hold on to someone to make sure I was not blown over. Microspikes not needed.

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.

Gorgeous, fun Winter trail run. I wore Kahtoola micro spikes for sure footing. Pretty views on a runnable Winter trail.

We wanted an “easier” trail close to Frisco and we chose this trail. We went up the ridge trail and it was STUNNING. As for easy it would probably be more like easy to moderate because there is some incline and a few rocky areas. We laughed because we were the only hikers without dogs! It took us 2 hours with stops along the way to take in the view. Loved it. But I am easy to please.

Wife and I hiked every inch of it...every overlook and side trail. I would stick to the ridge trail and go out and back rather than getting on the gravel path near the reservoir. Views from ridge trail are great!

it so beautiful up there I loved it, it was amazing

Beautiful views of Dillon Lake, Ten Mile Range and Gore Range. Thanks to the review below, we did the full loop through the woods. 4.1 miles total. 633 feet of elevation gain. Trail comes out .6 miles up the road from parking area.

We did the wide 3 miles from the trailhead straight out to the reservoir. It was cool, windy and an easy walk. We went mid-morning and there were very few people out there. The views are amazing. Perfect for out-of-towners looking for a good view and an easy hike.

Great views, but make sure you layer up. HEAVY winds and temps below freezing now

Beautiful trail! Take a snack to eat at the top!

Pretty easy. Scenic view of the reservoir. No shelter and ideal for mountain biking.

Very quiet trail, great views.

Nice easy hike, but not one that stands out as amazing. You get some nice views of the lake. We finished it in a little under 2 hours and that was with stops for pictures and a quick break to relax and enjoy the view of the lake.

Impassible snow as of 9/30

This was a beautiful hike all the way around. We started hiking from Chihuahua Gulch road. We made it to the lake in about 3 hrs. However, the last trail to get to the lake was more like ROCK CLIMBING. It was hard, as the rocks were loose!! We made it to the top but the clouds were rolling in and it was freezing. So we started to head back. It was just as scary and hard going down the mountain, having to climb on unstable rocks .
