we hiked the Missouri Lake Trail 2 weekends ago on a friend's recommendation who lived in Vail for many years. This is about a 6 mile round trip hike with a bit of a drive to get to it (a good hour from Avon). The last part of the drive is a twisty dirt road that can make folks carsick if they're prone to it. The hike itself is great- it was pretty chilly and windy when we started (which was late) so bring layers. As the sun finally came out later and the wind died down, it was absolutely delightful. Not scary at all, the trail crosses the creek several times, all through the trees, and ends up at a pretty lake which is a great place for a picnic. It took us about 3 1/2 hours round trip with a 7 year old and an 11 year old. Definitely recommend it!
