Great first "hike" upon arriving in Colordo
Jul 2021
Such a pretty, fairly easy hike with pretty views. The chipmunks are clearly use to being fed by the visitors! Go up from the bathroom side clockwise.

Great views!

A nice and easy trail in Breckinridge region near I-70. Provided great views of Dillon reservoir! Went for a quick stop on the way from Breckinridge to Boulder.

Easy and beautiful trail!
Jul 2021
This was an impromtu stop for us and it was worth it! Fantastic views on the whole trail. You see Dillon Resevoir from most parts of the trail. The trail is easy to walk and relatively short. Parking can get crowded.

Beautiful vistas, inconsiderate visitors
Jul 2021
The views of Lake Dillon and the mountains are spectacular! However, the visitors disobey every rule for walking in a National Forest. Posted signs remind visitors not to feed the wildlife--this includes chipmunks. Volunteers have labored to improve the trail in the past few years, but visitors climb over and around fences, causing erosion and degradation of the vegetation. Please stay on the trail to ensure your safety and save the nature on this trail! You can enjoy the chipmunks in their natural habitat without feeding them.

Short, quick and crowded
Jul 2021
It is a great view and a short hike. Loads of kids feeding chipmunks. But the view is worth stopping for before one goes for a decent hike.

Amazing views from top of Dillon Lake!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Just a short drive from Breckenridge town, there is this short trail with incredible views!!! And the chipmunks steal the show taking food from your hands. You can finish the trail in less than 1/2 hour and drive all around Dillon lake to enjoy the views.

Great View of the Lake But Gets Crowded
Jun 2021
Have stopped many times to enjoy the view and the short hiking trail available. It DOES get crowded especially during the peak summer months and the parking lot often is full. Best times to visit would normally be early morning or evening (especially to enjoy a great sunset view). The many chipmunks are always a draw for the young ones.

Absolutely beautiful
May 2021 • Couples
All of Dillon Reservoir is beautiful but this particular point is exceptional. There is a gravel path way around the point that offers a quick jaunt for more perspective views. Or you can hop on the paved bike path and go either direction. It's all beautiful and you can easily see why people have weddings there. Easy to get to and worth the quick stop.

Worth the short drive AND ITS FREE!
May 2021 • Family
Stunning vista covered with chipmunks. Bring them a treat and they eat out of your hand. It’s a very easy walk from parking lot. Maybe 60 yards. 1 bathroom at the top. Enjoy!

Star Gazing
May 2021
Close by, very convenient place to Star Gaze, night was clear and the stars, and satellites, were amazing. Only a couple of other cars pulled in, everyone respectful of the other visitors.
