Nice hike to the lakes. Lily pads were covering the lake. Not too hard of a walk. Some people, but not too crowded.

went up with family 4th of July weekend. very pretty lakes, but insanely busy. Luckily got an early start so had quiet time at lakes, but return was like hiking in a national park.

Being from Florida, my lungs were a bit stressed on this hike, but Lily Pad trail was a wonderful find. Saw Mamma Moose and her baby. They crossed hike trail path only 10 feet from me. Best to leave wildlife alone, so I stood still....More

This hike starts off fairly steep at first but then is a wonderful hike through Aspen forests and woods. The view of Lake Dillon and the mountains from some areas are just beautiful. Lily is a quiet, peaceful lake with beautiful surroundings

A not so rigorous delight with rewarding destination. Can become crowded at popular times. Consider an early evening hike, and return by flashlight.

We try to head up to this pretty lake every summer. You can either come at it from the Wildernest Road, or from the road off the roundabout at I70 coming out of Frisco. The Wildernest side is way easier. The Frisco side is a...More
