Went here in the afternoon after hiking in the morning- flat easy walk all around the Lake, just a few min drive from downtown Estes Park

Lilly Lake was one of the few lakes in the Rocky Mountain park that you could tour without taking a long or strenuous hike. You can see the lake as soon as you step off the parking lot. Since we were short on time, this worked well for us. We also met a few delightful chipmunks while strolling through the side of the lake.

Easy climb for lake views or there is also flat trail around the lake.
Easy access and close to Estes park.

This is a great .9 mile walk around a picturesque lake. Especially good for families or people who need a relatively flat or easy trail. There is also a 1.1 mile moderate trail as an option.

It would be disingenuous to call this a hike. It is more of a stroll around a crowded lake with gorgeous scenery. To get away from the crowd, take advantage of the Lily Ridge Trail for even better views. It is almost a hike with gentle climbs and descents but enough exertion to discourage greater than 90% of the visitors to Lily Lake.
