We hiked with our kids 3, 5, and 7. I wish we would have brought a sled to bring them up, it was a rough climb for the little ones. The view at the top was totally worth all of the whining from our children on the way up!

Such a beautiful place, beautiful lake, surrounded by rocks and vegetation which was changing their colors in the end of September. Monday looked to me like best time for this trip. Anyway, there was a lot of people there. I can imagine what's going on during the weekend. Hiking was not very easy due to the big rocks laying on the trail in lower section. The upper section, above the lake is not easy too. There was a lot of movable rocks mixed with the soil dirt, so I had to hike with carefulness. It's worth to pay $5 at the parking spot. I wish to come back with my family members. I spent about an hour sitting by the lake and watching people and the nature. I strongly recommend this place. RomanP

I had a blast making this hike. It is a modest hike at the beginning with alot of elevation but man is this worth it. Such spectacular views at the top. It only cost $5 to park and man what a value !!! Bring some water with you and be prepared for a snow ball fight at the top!

This is an excellent and pretty easy hike not far from Denver. Stunning landscapes and the odd bit of wildlife to spot too. Parking is straightforward - $5 in the trust box at the car park. Afterwards stop at Idaho Springs for a ton of dining options. A great day out.

The hike was difficult almost all up hill and Rocky on the way up but views were totally worth it when we got there! Was awesome to be able to hike all the way to the glacier. There were people skiing on it when we were there. Temperature was low 60s in August so bring a sweat shirt. Beautiful place to take photos.
