Here is an excellent lollipop loop in the hills above Silverthorne in a small triangle of the Williams Fork Mountains and Arapaho National Forest. The route is a mellow stroll on a gentle grade and soft tread through aspen and pine forest, with great views of the Gore Range, Dillon Reservoir, and the high mountains far to the south. This hike kicks off with a short climb through a little stand of trees and up a steep gravel road to the top of the hill, where the trail continues up a dry, south-facing slope of stubby sage and grasses. As we pass under a huge power pole, note the faint trail coming in from the right; that is our return route. Just past this junction, the path leads into a forest mix of pine and aspen. The trail is in superb condition, hugging the contours of the mountain on soft tread and easy, even flat grades in these early stages.
