It was a nice little hike up to Sapphire Point that provided us with beautiful views of Dillon Reservoir and the surrounding mountains and towns. Very well worth it.

Take some peanuts with you to feed the chipmunks, then enjoy the short hike around the loop. The views are absolutely STUNNING!

This is a good option for people with arthritis who can't walk far and those who have difficulty on uneven/rocky surfaces. The loop trail is mostly packed dirt and pea gravel; you do have to watch for rocks, but generally can avoid a lot of...More

Great short family friendly hike with views of Lake Dillon and the surrounding mountains. Can be rather busy on weekends.

My husband and I discovered this short and beautiful trail near Dillon, Colorado, while vacationing in Silverthorne, Colorado. We were driving around the lake while geocaching and this trail had a couple of geocaches. The trail has beautiful scenery and is a very easy hike....More

The trail at Sapphire Point Overlook is a short loop that is well worth taking. The views of Dillon (Reservoir) Lake are beautiful. The lake is the largest body of water that I've seen (so far) in Colorado. ...and yes, the chipmunks at the main...More

We took our son and nephew to the overlook and it was gorgeous. We wanted to see the view we had read about and also check out the chipmunks. We got to feed them and take a quick hike. Great ending to our busy afternoon.

The walk from the parking lot to Sapphire point is fairly flat. I am assuming it will be at the lookout point. It is a beautiful spot and you shouldn't miss it. You can take it slowly, just make sure you don't go back the... More
