Great place for a family hike! Pretty trails and we got to see a couple of elk swimming across the lake!

“Lovely walk around the lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is quite a popular park, so we had to park across the road and walk back to the lake. It was worthwhile though, as its an easy walk along the boardwalk, but very enjoyable with great views. Its a pretty lake and the surroundings are great.

Well worth making the stop.

“Breathtaking & Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Easy walk around a gorgeous little lake. Perfect for small children, disabled, or even overweight out of shape people like me! Great scenery for taking pictures. Clean and bathrooms on site. Worth the visit!

“Lovely Lily Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We descended upon Lily Lake after a day of hiking trails in Rocky Mtn National Park and we were so delighted with the beauty of this little lake that we couldn't resist one more mile of walking around the lake. What a lovely setting, just off the highway, and with a perfectly accessible path for taking strollers or wheelchairs.

“Nice Walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Every time I am in Estes Park I always enjoy this relaxing walk around the lake. The views are incredible (snowy peaks) and the walk easy - great for stretching my legs after a long drive. It usually take me anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes to walk this trail, depending on how many times I stop to admire the scenery around me.
