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 from. Sit by the bench - it offers solitude and a great vista to inspire... 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 ski lift and follows a pretty mountain stream up the mountain. At the end of... 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 officiated a wedding here two weeks ago. I live across town but had never been up here. The views are fantastic and the lodge is quite nice.

Either TA's address is incorrect or my iPhone was on the fritz but either way we had some difficulty finding the parking lot. We ended up parking at a lot that said employees only but we figured it was the middle of a weekday and no cars were around so we'd be ok for 30 minutes or so. The walk... More

Great little easy walk that the whole family can enjoy. A short walk through the woods to a reservoir with a path that goes completely around it.

This is an easy, short hike through the woods with a rewarding scenic view at the end when you reach the reservoir. There are a few benches and scenic overlooks where you can linger around the lake. If you like breathtaking, natural beauty then this easy hike is for you.

We hiked the Sawmill trail to the reservoir. Really nice shorter trail with river and reservoir to see along the way.

Start at Snowflake ski lift and it's a short gentle walk on the woods up to the reservoir. There's a nice walk around the lake and options to hike further if you wish. OK for families.

We love this easy hike that takes you by the creek and up to the reservoir. The trail head is not too well marked but is just to the right of the ski lift on Four O'Clock Road
