This is such a beautiful place to kayak, go fishing, or just walk around the many trails! There is a great nature playground that kids can play on along with many picnic areas to bring your own lunch! I even took my son's pictures there because the background is so beautiful!

We go to the lake often to walk. A few hills but not bad. I need the exercise. Took my grandson there to learn how to ride his bike.

We live by this lake and it's just beautiful. My son took his senior pictures by this lake, there are many pretty areas. The trails around the lake are well kept and are long for those that want to get some exercise. There are different routes as well. My son likes to ride his bike here to go fishing. The... More

Chalco is really close to my house, and I love walking the trails around the lake. It's typically much less busy than Lake Zorinsky is.

We live only about 50 yards from this lake area. So we walk the dog there daily. It's amazing with the well kept trails and the great views of the lake. Lots of little hidden picnic areas and fishing spots all along the lake.

What a beautiful hidden gem! We spent a beautiful Autumn Sunday afternoon here and enjoyed it immensely! The mulched trails traveled through forested areas and would be a great trail for dogs or for cross-country running. Very beautiful! We enjoyed the gorgeous prairie grasses and all the beautiful fall colors. The girls enjoyed the outdoor classroom with areas to climb... More

Chalco Hills is quite large and offers many trails and side spots to enjoy a picnic. The lake is near much of the trail systems so you get a nice view of the lake. Great place to spend a few hours enjoying the outdoors.

Like to go there to relax - you can always find a place where you can be alone. Deer, turkeys, lots of birds and critters. Don't have little ones but plenty of playgrounds. well kept and clean (even... More

Chalco Hills is the best in-town hiking opportunities, if not the best. Outside of town, Fontanelle Forest and Neale Woods are the best local hikes. By hiking, I do not mean going under power lines, next to a busy road or walking around houses. Chalco Hills has a variety of ecosystems you can hike around. There is a main trail... More
