It was a nice short easy walk. The reservoir is small and pretty. We continued on and looped around. We saw a fox along the way. We also saw some beautiful homes.

Short easy walk around a very small reservoir on stroller friendly crushed gravel. Can drive up or walk up via Snowflake ski trail. Can add on walks on other ski trails for more distance/elevation.

We actually hiked up to the reservoir on a hiking trail. Hike was fun but uphill most of the way. Actually had benches next to the reservoir. Nice scenery especially with the Aspens changing.

I officiated a wedding here two weeks ago. I live across town but had never been up here. The views are fantastic and the lodge is quite nice.

Great little easy walk that the whole family can enjoy. A short walk through the woods to a reservoir with a path that goes completely around it.

This is an easy, short hike through the woods with a rewarding scenic view at the end when you reach the reservoir. There are a few benches and scenic overlooks where you can linger around the lake. If you like breathtaking, natural beauty then this...More
