Lily Pad Lake Trail is a great 3.5 round trip easy-grade trail for the whole family – fun, scenic and an area full of wildlife (namely beavers, as well as elk and perhaps moose). Less than 90 minutes drive west of Denver. The hike leads to lower Lily Pad Lake and upper Lily Pad Lake.
Experience some of Colorado’s famous wilderness; with beaver ponds along the way.
If you will be in summit county this summer, make the drive to the Lily Pad Lake Trail. For driving directions and more see the USFS website.
