  • Beautiful and small Colorado park. Easy access off of I-70 up the mountain, fairly good parking at the two lots near the lake and lodge, as well as on the side of the road between the lots and lodge. Very easy flat hiking around the lake... harder hiking up to Chicago Lake. Great place to take visitors who want the CO experience but would get winded hiking anything that isn't flat. Clear lake water, usually some kind of water fowl around as well. Lodge also has a little store and restaurant.

  • Great for a quick trip to the mountains or a nice place to relax after a visit to Mt Evans. There are some great trails here that lead back into the wilderness. The trail to Chicago lake has some awesome scenery. Start by the lake and head down the trail, about 3 miles in (moderate hike that's suitable for older children) you hit the Idaho Springs reservoir which is beautiful. From there you can keep going on to Chicago lake. The trail continues on to multiple other lakes and the summit of Mt Evans.

  • We had a very nice walk around the lake with our young children. The trail is fairly flat pea gravel. There are quite a few tables available along the way for picnics as well as covered areas that can be reserved via permit.

  • A beautiful lake on the way to one of Colorado tallest peaks. Although small is it's really picturesque, especially in the fall and spring. Be sure to get some warm clothing cuz it may get cold up in the top parts of the area.

  • Even with the monsoon sky threatening downpour, Echo Lake is worth the stop. Picturesque with all the right elements. Perfect place for a rest on the drive to or from Mt Evans or simply to enjoy a picnic with family or friends.
