Livermore, Colorado Map

Out on Sunday morning 11/12/17. Trail well marked. Horses and dogs on leash allowed. No mountain biking.
Parts of the trail were muddy where sun had thawed the ground. Other parts, still frozen or decomposed granite. Did the entire loop. Saw only one large bird sorring in the sky above, two groups on horseback, and four couples on the entire walk. Water still running under the bridge on the trail. Nice hike for some good exercise and serenity.

I will be coming back here for sure. The open space was a little tricky to find since I'm not super familiar with the area. The breeze felt just as good as the sunshine did but I could see how this would be a super hot hike in the summertime. Only ran into a few other people here and will be bringing the bike back to go farther on the other trails next time. We didn't see any rattlesnakes but we did see a coyote and some deer.

This is a great short hike for all ages. The section on Sand Creek has a pretty stream, sandstone cliffs, and nice riparian areas. There are at least 3 stream crossings that have well place stepping stones. The loop around the hill crosses several interesting veins of rock.

Late September, pretty walk down to lake. We took it farther and found a creek and pretty valley with Aspen groves. Spotted a moose.

Beautiful lake and very remote. Glad we had a truck with 4wd for the drive in and to the parking lot/trail head.

Love hiking up in this area, we usually go early in the day and often have the place to ourselves. I don't believe we did the entire loop, but the part that goes along the creek along the rock sides is just lovely. We've gone further once the trail climbs up so you have a pretty good view of the whole area. Before that though, its easy enough and there a couple creek crossings to make you feel adventurous! I would imagine you most certainly wouldn't want to hike anywhere in this area during the heat of the day, so plan accordingly - very little shade!

This trail was way out there in the middle of no where, it felt a little strange hiking with our young girls and some weird guy showing up in the parking lot, loitering around, and then left, anyway, I would watch out for rattlesnakes because we encountered a small one near one of the many gates you go through, definitely go when it's cooler out, no shade on the trail, the deer flies practically carried us away on the last part through the canyon area so bug spray is helpful, nice bathrooms and covered picnic table area at the parking lot, the stream was really nice, the different kind of rock layers was really pretty, the girls were able to handle the 3 mile loop with just a little up and down on the trail, one crossing over the stream did not have nice big rocks like the other crossings so the girls had to take their shoes and socks off to cross over, we will do it again someday but be more prepared next time

A few hills. Horseflies we're very annoying! Beautiful views. Couple of creek crossings, we all got our feet wet.

Good trail with excellent views and a nice river crossing midway through. We went left from the trailhead and it was a steeper decline than you experience anywhere else on the trail. We did the OT loop also -- totally worth it!

Long drive from UW to Longmont. Needed a trail run. Nice, runnable trail. Got about 6 quick miles in.

(3.18.17) Hiked down the access road (currently closed) to the first lake. Quick and easy hike down. Would be a nice place to camp/back pack.

Took the kids on this trail and they had a blast our youngest is 2 and she managed for a little while. But even with her on my back this was an easy trail.

Nice enjoyable hike on a warm February day. The north side of the loop is a little more boring than the south. You go through about eight or nine gates over the course of the hike. Saw more horseback riders than hikers.

beautiful trail, head to the bent rock trail from the parking lot and when you cross the river the first time is where youchoose your loop route, heading right/straightish brings you into a beautiful canyon with a creek. trails are very easy. ky-lynn is also beautiful

Would have been easy if I wasn't sore from doing Hanging Lake trail the day before..... Took the north side to the river and took the south side back to the parking lot. I don't think it really matters which you take because you have to go up eventually both ways.

It was a beautiful November day so the sun wasn't too hot but I could see how that could be an issue other times. Will be back for sure but will bring a picnic with me next time.

Good place to set up a tent for the night. The road to the lake is pretty rough and you need high-clearance 4WD. Very peaceful and quiet, some easy walking trails between the lakes as well.

Very easy, and great for families. Not super great fishing or scenery. If that's what you're looking for, I recommend going off trail and exploring some of the rock formations nearby. That's where you can really find some beautiful views. I've posted a couple pictures of the third lake from one of those formations.
