  • Gorgeous area--lots of families/tourists around the lake area but several trailheads to more private hikes. Also climbing access.
  • Beautiful lake, kept very clean. Public bathrooms were well maintained.
  • Across the street from Twin Sisters trail head. Nice lake on a calm day with the mountains reflection
  • Several beatiful lakes on a short trail.
  • This is a beautiful lake in the Colorado mountains. It is very accessible by car. However, that means that it is extremely busy. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and there were no less than 3 weddings going on. An easy walk around the lake that accommodates strollers. There are also more challenging hikes nearby, but we didn't do them because of our stroller.
