Right off a residential street. You can drive to Sawmill Reservoir in 10 minutes from anywhere in Breckenridge. A very photogenic reservoir surrounded by pines and a mountain backdrop. The short hike around the reservoir is relatively flat and easily completed by anyone. A free...More

Great hiking trail. We are in our 80's and found the trail not difficult. We enjoyed this hike very much. The trail is along a beautiful river and we saw a weasel.

It was a nice short easy walk. The reservoir is small and pretty. We continued on and looped around. We saw a fox along the way. We also saw some beautiful homes.

Short easy walk around a very small reservoir on stroller friendly crushed gravel. Can drive up or walk up via Snowflake ski trail. Can add on walks on other ski trails for more distance/elevation.

The reservoir is the end of a trail that starts from the 4 O' clock. The place offers a very scenic view of the water and the white peaks behind. A path circulates around the reservoir and you have plenty of places to take photographs...More

Just up 4 O'clock rd, about 3 blocks from Main Street, is a wonderful hike. It doesn't take much time, if a family friendly grade, and you are rewarded with a beautiful reservoir at the top! The trailhead itself is right next to the Snowflake...More

We actually hiked up to the reservoir on a hiking trail. Hike was fun but uphill most of the way. Actually had benches next to the reservoir. Nice scenery especially with the Aspens changing.

I think it took us an hour and a half. We also took a break at the pond.
