Easy to get to, generally flat terrain, and a pretty reward when you get there. Remember to pack it in and pack it out and keep your dog on a leash!

This is supposed to be a very easy hike but I found the trail VERY rough and rock strewn. There is little elevation gain so that is not a problem, though you are up around 10,000' or so. Large swaths of forest have been cleared at the start, I presume for fire mitigation for the Wildernest residential area. Nice for a walk.

A fairly easy hike thru lodgepoles forests to two alpine lakes that in the spring have yellow water lilies blooming. Good for kids, but this is in a designated Wilderness Area and all dogs mut be leashed, and no bikes or strollers are allowed.

Easy hike from the top of Wildernest. Get there early to avoid the crowds and get a parking space. Be quiet if you hope to see wildlife and do not let your dog swim in either lake. It is bad for the environment. Keep your dog on a leash or get a fine from the Forest Service.

This is an easy hike and appropriate for children. A pleasant walk through the woods and beautiful lake to stop and have lunch or snack.
