Although it is a beautiful trail, it is not maintained for horses. All of the bridges we're rotted out so we had to try to go around them, added two extra hours and a lot of stress. Our horse literally fell through the first bridge...More

We were staying right at the base of this hike. It was a beautiful hike that ended at both the lily pad lake as well as another larger lake. The view of Dillon Lake at the beginning was stunning. It is a moderate hike. Not...More

Great medium sized hike from Ryan Gulch Road. Don't be fooled: when you first arrive, you'll see a small pond with lily pads, but keep going and you'll find the true lake. Since this is a popular destination, I was a little surprised to find...More

Nice hike to the lakes. Lily pads were covering the lake. Not too hard of a walk. Some people, but not too crowded.

Being from Florida, my lungs were a bit stressed on this hike, but Lily Pad trail was a wonderful find. Saw Mamma Moose and her baby. They crossed hike trail path only 10 feet from me. Best to leave wildlife alone, so I stood still....More

This trail is now out of control. So overused that the county is beginning to ticket cars parked illegally. You cannot park in the road and obstruct traffic including the Summit Stage. Park at the transfer station in Silverthorne and ride up. We just had...More

This hike starts off fairly steep at first but then is a wonderful hike through Aspen forests and woods. The view of Lake Dillon and the mountains from some areas are just beautiful. Lily is a quiet, peaceful lake with beautiful surroundings
