It started to rain the first time we were there so we went back. I wanted to take some photos and I don’t like shooting in the rain. This is a wonderful even if all you want is to take is The scenery.

This is a relatively short hike with awesome views! You may even see some elk! Keep your dog on a leash and take some drinking water. Don't forget your camera!!!

Very beautiful area to wander around in for a while or maybe longer. Unfortunately we only had time to stop and stay for a lunch, but sure did enjoy the time here and the views.

Dillon Reservoir is such a gorgeous place! We love going there multiple times every year! We rent a boat from the Frisco Marina, we love to camp at Prospectors Campground! Adorable little towns by it, and a free outdoor shooting range! Love, love, love it!!!

For boats yes, but I don't think anything is needed for rental of kayaks, canoes, paddle boards.
