This hike starts at the base of the Snowflake lift on Four-o-Clock Road. It follows the creek up the mountain and ends at Sawmill Reservoir. Fun and easy hike for little ones and lots to see along the way. No dangerous cliffs, etc.

Great hike for 3 year old to reservoir with views of mountains at Breckenridge. From the bottom of the Snowflake lift there are two paths. The easiest path is along a stream straight up into the forest with a gradual easy and wide path and...More

This was a great place to visit with our group! We had several children, all under age 8. The main trail around the reservoir was stroller friendly. There are several other smaller trails going away from the reservoir which we did not do. The scenery...More

A nice way to get acclimated to the altitude. Not too hard, not too long. Just an easy way to get a little exercise.

Great location, short hike & amazing views. Sawmill is a must see for any visitor in Breckenridge! Bring your camera, lunch & plenty of water to take in the views from all sides of the reservoir.

this is a spot that was greatly under-rated and didn't have many reviews. It is a beautiful area and has wonderful walking paths.

This is a great place if you like to fish or have an easy hike. Great place to take little kids to explore. Parking is limited but very few people will venture to this place because it is not hard core hiking. I enjoyed sitting...More
