Lily Pad Lakes
Less than an hour and a half from the Denver Metro area is a short hike that reaches into the Eagles Nest Wilderness Area. Along the way, over 50 species of wildflowers line the trail, ending at a pair of evergreen-surrounded lakes, one of which has many of the yellow pond lilies blooming in July. The Meadow Creek Trail access to Lily Pad Lake and its adjacent, but much smaller sibling, gains about 800-vertical feet in just over a mile. Wildflower Alert: This trail offers lovely sego lilies and yellow pond lilies in mid-July.
