This was not the best trail to walk in the winter as it got slippery on the north side of the overlook. We enjoyed watching the chipmunks and did like the scenery.

Best view of mountains was from the parking lot in winter. Recent snowfall made trail icy so be careful. Neat little walk with a few benches to sit if needed. Very peaceful area. The smell of pine trees was abundant here!

Beautiful view! Short .6 mile hike if you do the whole loop. Very easy to get to. Very easy terrain to walk, even in the snow. Try to go on a day when visibility is high. We went on a pretty windy and snowy day...More

My husband and I were married here almost 16 years ago. It is a beautiful sport for pictures and very popular year round for marriage ceremonies. It is an easy hike around and a good place to picnic in the summer.

It was raining when we were there but it was so pretty and an easy drive. Something that doesn't take much time or effort to get beautiful view

Be sure to stop and hang with the little critters! We didn’t have seeds so we fed them a chips trail mix. They weren’t as interested but they did come right up to our fingers to check it out. It was way cool! A must...More

Must make a stop at Sapphire point overlook! Has a short loop walk that is fantastic to take in the sights. It overlooks a gorgeous reservoir. Friendly short walk, not a long hike. One of the best views in the mountains!

This is a relatively short stop unless you plan on hiking around. This must be a popular place for weddings, because there was a wedding there when we visited. If you're in the Breckenridge area you should definitely stop here, worth the short detour to...More

The trail goes around in a full circle so there is no back track. We saw Chimpmucks and a Squirel which they come up to you. Awesome photo to take...must go and see!
