The most iconic to me were Silverton, Ouray, a little past Ridgeway and that turn before Telluride. Molas Pass is also great. Everything is Gorgeous as always. Just about any car would do the job. If you aren’t from the area and are afraid of heights... this will become a bit challenging.

Fairly easy trail with beautiful stream, awesome hike!

Great morning hike. Just over 2 hours at a moderate walking pace with quick scenic viewpoint stops along the way. Now off for a craft beer!

Lovely- good descent in- and out - lovely views- we didn't go all the way to the campgrounds. Lots of aspens.

Came out to see fall foliage and do some hiking. Great local hike. Weather was perfect. No one else on Trail most of the way. Views did not disappoint.

beautiful hike but definitely not well marked. There are trails all over the place so it's easy to get off the trail if you aren't paying attention--not a big deal since you can't really get lost--just and up with a longer hike than planned

I enjoyed this trail in the fall for the colors. The best view is really from the road/edge of the lake before you drive to the trailhead. From here the mountain reflects off of the water. There is parking right at the trailhead and also parking earlier than that where the trail intersects the road.

We went on a Sunday late morning, and saw no one on the trail - just a couple fisherman on the lake. There are several different routes you can take for a shorter or longer hike.

Great trail with all sorts of easy options. Dog friendly. Beautiful views.

love the major colors from the start, the leaves are falling and it's hard to just watch the trail. cows are coming down now so watch for the patties. a lot of fresh dead fall trees in the trail now. Great time enjoy.
