Trail shared by Brian Smith

An exceedingly popular roadside trail looping around a lovely subalpine lake.

ADA accessibly: This trail is partially accessible. Some damaged sections may prevent passage of wheeled devices.

Description

Given this trail's proximity to CO-7, its lack of elevation change, and its gorgeous views of Longs Peak, this trail is often very, very crowded in the summer.

The trail is well maintained and features benches along the way that offer places of respite to the elderly or handicapped.
