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.

Very nice walk. Lots of flowers and easy to get to. Worth the drive.

Favorite local trail, hike it a couple times of week just to escape. Great views of the lake and mountains, very quiet for being close to town!

My wife and 4 kids are here for a couple of weeks and love to hike easy trials. Had not done this one yet. We really loved it. Took about an hour or less with stopping for pics etc.

One thing though...use this app to find your way down. We have hiked quite a bit over the years but still managed to get turned around on the way down. We spoke with other hikers who did the same thing. The map feature on this trails app helped get us back to the van. No danger, just a little turned around. Follow along with the app and you’ll be fine. Or just pay attention when you go up! BUT - a sign or two would be nice.

We loved it and will be doing it again.

we liked it for it being a smaller camp site. it has a variety of hiking trails and 4x4 trails the camp sites are beautiful.

It was on the shorter side actually clocked 3.5O miles. Pretty easy. Felt like I could do more. That's the only reason not 5 stars. Beautiful scenery.

Easy hike but SO beautiful

Beautiful. Wildflowers almost at peak. Not too windy and no snow on trail.

Very easy hike with absolutely beautiful views. It’s pretty chilly and windy at this altitude, so definitely wear layers. The hike was easy enough for my 4yo daughter and I carried my 2yo on my back, if that’s any indication. We hiked July 1, 2018.
I rated five stars because the views payoff for minimal effort is unbeatable. Loved it.

Super easy, took friends from MS. Nice flowers, vistas & water.

Nice wide trail. Views! Wildflowers. Easy incline. The dogs loved it!

Beautiful wildflowers. Easy hike. Still deep water over a portion of a trail looping one of the lakes today.

Great trail for kids and an easy adjustment to the altitude.

Ok trail, incline all the way up. Very windy at the lake. Bring a jacket.

I’m obese and out of shape so this trail was perfect. I got a workout heading up the trail but not so much that I was miserable. If you are looking for an easy trail or have small kids this is perfect. Great views.

Cool little hike. Took a 7 and 10 year old. While they complained a bit about the “uphill” portions, they had a great time exploring the trail, woods, and views.

Great first day in the mountains, hike. Beautiful scenery.

Amazing views--especially from the top. Few small areas of snow to cross--but done easily. First 1/2 mile intense, but levels out after that.

This is an easy trail/walk with consistant footing. Very nice views. Would be good in the fall since there are Aspen in several locaions along the way. River sounds, birds, interesting mine tailings and remnants of mine activity. Good for kids and people not in the greatest of shape.

We started at Meadows Trail from parking lot on Highway 6, then Crosscut up to Ridge Trail where picture was taken.

Great trail for a family or when getting adjusted to the altitude! Short hike to the dam at the top with pretty views and wildflowers along the trail! A lot of people bring their dogs as well. If you are looking for more of a challenge though, I'd recommend a different trail.

Stunning views! There are 3 small lakes in a beautiful setting. It's a must see.

Boring trail. Might be good for mountain biking, but it's not very good as a hiking trail. It's very open and you can hear the noise from the highway.

Very easy and a good warm-up hike.

A nice easy trail, some awesome views of the lake and surrounding mountains. A nice mix of open and wooded areas. Great for warm-ups.

June 10 2018, still snowed over on the trail in a few key places, lots of traffic but most drop out after the first or second climb.

easy trail. I did it with my 9 year old and my 8 month old. I was able to use the stroller but mainly stayed in the main road. it took us 30 minutes to reach the lake from the parking lot but we are slow walkers.

Altitude is rough at first but the hike is beautiful. Views the whole way!
