  • A nice lake and trail that is accessible. Went there with a friend that needed a wheelchair and we had a very nice walk around this pretty lake with lovely views. 
  • Lily Lake is easily accessible and offers an easy trail walk around the lake for those not inclined to not take a strenuous hike. 
  • Sited within the Roosevelt National Forest, it is easy to miss this when visiting the Rockies so be sure to include this on your trip here. I chose this as the last attraction on our way back to Denve...  read more »
  • A beautiful lake on scenic route 7 surrounded by evergreens. There is a trail around be lake which is relatively easy to walk.
  • Scenic lake located off main road. Two parking lots and a nice trial around the lake. Restroom located in main parking lot.
  • Good little spot to stop on a scenic drive down 7. Parking available off road. There is also a trail to the twin sisters across the street.
  • Beautiful anytime of year, about a mile around the loop. Flat and easy if you just need to get out and enjoy the mountains.
  • The lake is surrounded by an easy walking trail. The views are beautiful from any side of the lake. The trail also connects to several other trails, one leading up the mountain. We had our wedding there in September 2012 which was wonderful. The weather can change quickly that time of the year which was aparent when the wedding prior to ours had gusting cold winds. It calmed down and made for a beautiful wedding for my bride and me. We'll be back for years to come.
