beautiful place to walk or ride a bike

It's a long trail, professionally built, paved...around the lake. Very picturesque. We love it. It's away from the main road so it's quiet and safe from vehicles.

I walked up from the outlet mall along the bicycle path. It was a beautiful day with bright sunshine.

Great Views friendly town. Stop into the Dillon Dam Brewery. They have good food and great beer. Hamburgers and fried chicken both were great.

One day we attempted a bike ride along the path but had to cut it short as storm clouds quickly rolled in over the... More

Nice paved area that surrounds much of the lake and dam. Very interesting to see the beauty of the mts. and the water as one total picture. Could take pictures here forever!

Whether you are on the lake itself, riding a bike or walking around it or sitting at the Tiki Bar...the views are breathtaking. You can rent a boat from Dillon or Frisco Marina and tootle around the entire reservoir and stop along the way.

Dillon Lake is surrounded by the most scenic mountains in the Rockies. There are roads ringing the lake and in late September the aspens ring it with brilliant gold. Stop at the Safeway in Frisco and make a deli sandwich to take to the Swan Mountain road (one of the ringing roads) which rises to give incredible views. There is... More
