One of our favorite hikes is up in Rocky Mountain National Park called Lily Lake. It’s a very easy to navigate hike with great accessibility. It’s one of my go-to trails when it’s just me and the kids because I know it’s safe and I won’t have to carry Emmy.
The main loop is just shy of a mile and can be navigated with a stroller.
Back in 2018 Cory made it around with our double stroller and a busted Achilles in a boot.
Now the kids hike on their own!
We brought lunch to enjoy while watching all the wildlife. I LOVE summer in the mountains so much.
We choose to add some elevation and distance by going up over the ridge. There are many other trails that connect to the main Lily lake trail so you can add distance if you like. You can also paddle on the lake and the kids want to bring our boards next time.
If you are in the Estes Park area we can’t recommend this trail enough! We have also visited in the fall and winter….all beautiful!
