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.

I love this one!! I’ve done it twice. Both times, very lightly trafficked, peaceful, serene. Beautiful flowers and breathtaking views all the while and definitely rewarding toward the top. A consistently gradual incline, not too tough!

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!

Very picturesque hike with great views of the reservoirs, mountains and town of Dillon. Great for a short hike

great hike. lots of wild flowers. great views of the mountain ranges.

Very beautiful hike. The views are amazing! Saw lots of marmots. Not a hard hike

Amazing views and great stops for lunch!

Views were simply amazing! Makes for a great loop. Not congested. Very few truly technical spots.

We took the Rubicon here. What a beautiful place! I must admit there are some areas where lockers are needed so be prepared for that.

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.

A nice trail with a 4x4. Not too difficult. Take the upper left to the top of Radical Hill. Usually a few goats up there. Then backtrack and take Saints John back to Montezuma or just go back via Deer Creek.

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.

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.

Hiked the trail this morning. The wildflowers are spectacular. The only thing that detracts from this hike is the view of I-70 and the Eisenhower Tunnel on the way back.

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.

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

The directions are not accurate to the trailhead. Use the gps on the trail map to find the actual parking area. Great hike for dogs, there is water at least 60% of the time. Only downside is that you can hear I 70 2/3 of the way
