Beautiful serene lake with a walking trail around it. The trail is crushed rock. The park is beautiful and has some benches and picnic tables. The lake is not huge but it’s beautiful!

Perfect early October hike. It felt like a Narnia experience walking between the Fall & Winter scenery. The 4 of us ( 2 adults & 2 dogs ) had an excellent time! Echo Lake was stunning. We saw our first ever in real life Moose. This trail/hike will forever shine in my memory.

Beautiful lake in the middle of the trail. Great place for fishing if you are into that or just to soak in the nature. Lots of hiking options around it

Unfortunately one of the main trails was closed since it was winter time. It was also windy and pretty cold, but the view was really worth it. I went on the trail right next to the lake and it was mostly frozen but so beautiful with the mountain backdrop behind it. Definitely a scene you think of when imagining Colorado.

The 10 miles drive from Idaho Springs at the end of March was safe and easy. The Echo Lodge right after the Lake is literally covered by ice, unreachable and so is the road to Mount Evans. You won't see the Lake since is frozen and because the recent snow is covered by a white blanket. Birds and a Squirrel asked for food. We saw a lot of Deers marks and poo. It was a nice, easy, short hike. Unexpected for us. Bathrooms were open.

Beautiful mountain lake with great picnic spots. Some of the best trails in Colorado surround the lake. Awesome views of the Rockies and Mt. EVANS.

Absolutely beautiful mountain Lake! We visited Octo 2019 and the lake was frozen but it was still super cool to be able to run on the iced lake, and the snow and views were absolutely breathtaking! Want to come back when there is no snow on the ground as well to experience this gem!
Definitely visit if you are close by!

Drove up to the Lake from Evergreen - about 50 minutes. The scenery was impressive as you climbed about 3000 feet. The lake itself was small and a bit disappointing - with not very clear water. The wonderful setting with the mountain background will provide some superb pictures. We couldn't take the path around the lake because of icy conditions due to a recent (and early) snowstorm. You can make the trip from Evergreen a loop by going on to Idaho Springs (a nice place for lunch) and taking I-70 back.

It was our last stop for Mt Evans (that was closed during COVID) such a beautiful and peaceful place, love the family time over there.

We started our drive to Mt. Evans and this lake is on the way there. This was the end of the drive in October because anything past this lake is closed up to the peak for automobiles. The lake was pretty and we snooped around the lodge that was closed too. No hiking for us as we were heading to the airport.
