Lily Lake (HA):   D/R/E: .8 mile loop - zero elevation gain
Hiking Distance Is The Total Length Of The Hike

Lily Lake offers hikers some of the best mountain views from an easy, wheel-chair accessible, roadside trail. The Diamond Face of Longs Peak towers to the south; the Twin Sisters, rocky escarpments skirted in scenic woodlands, lie to the east; and Lily Mountain, yet another spectacular stone-crowned peak, dominates the northern horizon. The broad, flat path begins by winding along the base of Lily Mountain, then meanders through meadow and open forest on the west shore of the lake, and finally passes through a wetlands area, populated by a variety of water fowl, on the southern shore. If you have the time, you can hike the nearby Lily Mountain trail, which lies outside the park proper.
