It’s no secret that we LOVE to hike.
One hike that we go back to many times is Lily Lake near Estes Park.
One of the reasons we love it is that it is super family friendly and very accessible. Cory even “hiked” around the lake right before he had his achilles repaired.
The kids were just 1 month and 23 months old at the time. He did push the stroller all the way around the lake in a walking boot.
If you are feeling more adventurous you can hike up around the mountain and add on many more miles depending on what you are looking for. The kids love the upper route because you get to scramble on rocks and have amazing views from the top.
This trail is technically in Rocky Mountain National Park but outside the gates so you don’t need to pay an entry fee.
There are bathrooms at the trail head but unfortunately dogs are not allowed past the parking lot.
We loved our visit this past weekend and were discussing how this would be the perfect place to start snowshoeing with the kids.
What’s one of your favorite hikes?
