Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Echo Lake Park is a park located along the Mount Evans Scenic Byway, which goes through awesome landscape and is worth the drive all by itself. Features a beautiful alpine lake, with two picnic areas, and a lodge/gift shop nearby. Ducks, various small birds and even some deer can be seen around the park area. I went in May, but the Mount Evans road was still closed, and there was some old snow in some areas. Bring a jacket, because it is considerably cooler up than at Idaho Springs at the start of this scenic road.

We love to visit in summer and also fall when the aspen are changing. The lake has great picnic areas and wonderful hiking trails that can be hiked for their entire length or shorter hikes. The views of Mt. Evans are spectacular! There is a lodge at one end of the lake which has a restaurant and a gift store with a variety of merchandise. The drive to the lake is beautiful and the road on up to the top of Mt. Evans takes off near the lodge and is quite a thrill to drive the narrow road. Wild goats and bighorn sheep are prevalent on the road and the views from the top are spectacular! A great place to visit for the day!

We were lucky enough to get a parking spot, so we stopped and took a walk around the lake. We were lucky enough to spot a bald eagle!

Beautiful mountain lake with great picnic spots. Some of the best trails in Colorado surround the lake. Awesome views of the Rockies and Mt. EVANS.

Absolutely beautiful mountain Lake! We visited Octo 2019 and the lake was frozen but it was still super cool to be able to run on the iced lake, and the snow and views were absolutely breathtaking! Want to come back when there is no snow on the ground as well to experience this gem!
Definitely visit if you are close by!

Stopped by here as part of our daily tour of the area. We stopped at a parking lot and did an hour hike with our group of 8. What a lovely park and even though we took a short hike, it really was beautiful. It was so lovely and peacefully quiet. Would love to do more hiking there when in the area again.

If you are thinking about heading up to Echo Lake I heard the other day that road is closed. So you can go over the pass, but you'll have to stop at the lodge if you stop at all.

There is a lot to see walking around the lake and above it on the hiking trails.
You have to take the camera!
It's a beautiful lake which looks even better in sunset.
I recommend this place.

We stopped at Echo Lake before heading over to hike the Chief Mountain Trail. The trail head used to be quite close to the lake, but now the starting point is farther up the road; stop and ask at the info. booth at the entrance to Mt. Evans scenic highway. The Chief Mountain hike has a deceptively slow, steep incline but it is never really grueling. Fantastic payoff at the top. Great, fairly short hike with outstanding views!

We only drove as far as Echo Lake and did not go up to Mt. Evans 14,000 elevation due to my husband's heart condition. Even at this 10,000 elevation he had some breathing trouble, but we took a gentle stroll around part of the lake and sat on a bench. Such a beautiful and peaceful spot! We saw some rainbow trout in the water at the lake edge. A few men were there fishing. It was worth the drive.
