Description

This is an easily-accessible gem, located just up the hill from Estes Park on CO-7. Lily lake is very popular - with good reason! Autumn is a great time to take a stroll around the lake or just gaze out from the parking lot. Stands of aspen trees create veins of vibrant color in an otherwise evergreen forest.

Check out the Lily Lake and Ridge Loop for info on an optional hike around the lake.

On the Road: Drive south on CO-7 from Estes Park or north from Allenspark.
