  • We did several hikes around Rocky Mountain National Park and this one is a great one for kids. It has beautiful views, flat, has flush toilets, drinkable water, and a good distance. I thought it was much better than bear lake which is over crowded.
  • Great .9 mile loop with the option of adding on a small foothill climb for an extra .5 miles. Limited paring but overflow parking across highway 7. There's also 1 picnic table.
  • Nice easy short trail around beautiful lake. A lot of wildlife when we were there, including a moose.
  • Went at night to watch the meteor shower. It was a great view of the night sky.
  • We saw a moose! Beautiful easy hike. Lots of muskrats.
