“A quick loop right off of the peak-to-peak highway near Estes that offers a taste of RMNP's bounty.”— Brian Smith
Lily Ridge Trail switchbacks its way up the ridge on the northern shore of the lake before flattening out and descending to the lake's eastern shore. This trail could prove a slight challenge for some but the views down on the lake are worth it if you're willing to put in the extra work.
Once you descend back to the lake, you'll be back at the trailhead.
