You can park your car at the top of Wildernest by the Buffalo Mountain trailhead. Or you can take the Summit Stage and get off at the stop right next to the Lily Pad Trailhead. Both trailheads are close to each other at the top...More

Nice simple hike to test being acclimated to altitude. A bit uphill and nice scenery around pair of lakes.

Great little hike with beautiful views. Easy with small elevation gain. Hike is rocky in some areas so wear good shoes.

if you're into hiking and want to see some amazing views, then check this place out. if you don't like the outdoors and adventure... well... shouldn't you be somewhere else like NYC where there's no grass?

Pretty easy set of ups and downs. Lots of woods. Saw a moose going into the first set of trees after the initial hill and open space. Did not make it to the lake at the end because the trail was not marked well. My...More

We don't live at altitude any more, and we don't hike that much, either. This was perfect for our varied ages and for our dogs! Pretty level, a variety of scenery, some foot bridges, wildflowers, a lily pad pond, and a like with a sandy...More

For #1 rated hike not super impressed but maybe it was because it was cloudy, rainy. Lily pad lake was cool. For me it wasn't as "easy" as it said but I did ok. I'm sure there are moose up there!!!

Highly recommend if you want an easy hike. My husband and I kept a brisk pace and it took us 40 min each way. We spent some time at the lake. It is highly trafficked so if you don't like other people around, this will...More
