Awesome hike for those that are getting used to the altitude. The scenery is amazing.

We hiked this after a Lake Dillon kayak trip. It was the perfect trail to get a good view of the whole lake and range, as well as impending storms. Wildflowers and awesome views the whole way.

We hiked partway up this trail on July 6. We got on this trail from Peru Creek, which is a gravel road. We hiked 2 miles up the road first- don't do that if you don't have to. We should've driven up and parked.
The trail is steep at first, but travels through some interesting landscapes of pine, boulders, and an aspen grove. We only made it to the first viewpoint, a big bowl looking out over the reservoir and valley. Very worth it, though. Next time I'd like to make it above treeline.
The only traffic we ran into was mountain bikers coming downhill from A-Basin. Some of the curves are pretty sharp, so keep an ear and an eye out for everyone's safety. Some footing was loose and dusty, so wear sturdy footwear.

Our family of 5 (parents and kids age 12,13, and 16) hiked this trail our first day in Dillon. We live on the east coast, at sea level, and this was a great hike for us as we acclimated to the altitude. Beautiful scenery and surprisingly great views/ scenic overlooks. I'm not in great shape, and stopped occasionally on the steeper parts of the trail for some water, but this trail was perfect for us!

Delightful moderate hike above the treeline. Outstanding vistas. Last cairn is a throne!

I was blown away by the views of this hike! There’s actually three ponds, if you go out a bit past the first one and the views from there are amazing! It’s super short and there’s not really any hills. Good for families with kids and for those not able to do much hiking but still want to see some crazy good views.

Breathtakingly beautiful and easy. We wanted a short little hike before dinner and boy did this location deliver. Gorgeous views 360 degrees. Make sure you hike out to the third pond!

Did this in the evening around sunset. Absolutely INCREDIBLE at that time. We stayed late and could see the Milky Way!

Great trail, stunning views!

Fantastic short hike for flatlanders staying at keystone and wanting to get away from the hustle of Summit County. Breathtaking views , clear water and wildlife.

Easy, yes, but very pretty. As someone else said, the perfect short hike.

Much better than hiking up or down a ski hill like most of the tourists do while in town.

Beautiful! During the weekend, you’ll probably run into a large group of Jeep’s hitting radical hill.

Great little pass. There is a creek crossing that can be deep, though I've always seen it in reasonable shape.

The switchback have had some maintenance since I last ran it and are much less intimidating. There is little room for passing, so if you know someone is coming, be kind and pull over at a switchback and let them through. Backing up on a shelf road isn't ideal for many people.

All that said... beautiful area. Once the snow melts on the Red cone exit that is also a fun ride down.

The whole trail is currently passable.

Our new favorite trail! Great for young kids because it’s short and easy. The views are amazing. We will bring family/friends to this trail when they come to visit us.

Great for a quick walk or if you have small kids. One con is you can hear highway noise.

This trail was very easy. It’s for every age and everyone. The trails were bit hard to follow, but not where you would get lost. The scenery is breath taking. Water so clear you can see the bottom. I highly recommend this small trail.

It was a very easy hike. The scene is so beautiful. This trail is for everyone.

Fun walk with our granddaughter! More houses and roads than we prefer but a nice trail

Great views. The road is easy to miss to turn on to, a dirt road is what you should be on the look out for. Good trail for all ages from who all we saw on the trail.

Good early morning hike! Took our 8 month old grandchild with us. Pretty views and meadow had lots of flowers in bloom!

Did this hike on an overcast July morning and loved it. Not too strenuous with nice views. Nothing incredibly special, but still a nice little hike.

great little hike. on our way up the pass, greeted by hard of big horn sheep. you can actually walk a look larger around the bigger lake too.

The trail where bikers are not permitted is quite nice. The water is crystal clear and the views of the mountains are breathtaking. The trail is very easy to access as well as easy to hike. Although jt’s a beautiful hike, I personally enjoy views that don’t include power lines and major roadways. For where it’s located, it’s a great hike and worth it.
