This is an easy walk for all ages. There is a boardwalk around the entire lake with offshoots of trails if you care to hike a bit. It was a beautiful day for us, so the day was quite pleasant.

Silver Lake is a tranquil lake, that is beautiful and home to an abundance of wildlife. It was an easy walk around the outlined path, but there was plenty of trails and hiking to be had. You could spend all day there and enjoy yourself.

Family reunion, and we needed a pretty yet easy walk which everyone in the group could manage. Silver Lake filled the bill. Wide, mostly flat trail around the pretty lake, some of it on boardwalk. Those in their 70s and even 80s in our group...More

Silver Lake is a smallish lake that is becoming a marshy meadow, but has plenty of charm, due to the surrounding peaks and forest. There's still plenty of lake to enjoy. A nice boardwalk takes you around much of the lake, with the rest of...More

In town for USA Fencing's National Championship, I visited Silver Lake on a day trip in July. A well-known ski resort in winter, this area is covered in wildflowers in the summer. There is a ~1/2 mile walking tour that takes you around the lake...More
