Lily Mountain is ideal for Estes Park visitors who don’t have the time to hike in the heart of Rocky Mountain National Park. This is a classic alpine hike with rewarding views and a steady climb. Lily Mountain is often passed over for other hikes in the vicinity, such as Twin Sisters, and the hike is often confused with the small walk around Lily Lake. In addition, it’s usually kept a secret and out of brochures, making this hike one of the least crowded around Estes Park. The first half mile parallels CO 7 as the shaded trail begins its ascent along the ridge. Large pines and boulder clusters dominate the landscape here. The hard-packed dirt trail has loose rocks and some exposed tree roots. Expect snow on the trail if you hike outside of the recommended seasons. We hiked in early winter and encountered packed snow from the trailhead on. Early in the trail the landscape also includes aspen trees and consistent light filtering through them. The trail takes an uncharacteristic dip and then flattens out before ascending a small man-made staircase and starting a series of small switchbacks. As the trail crests, the Estes Park Valley, Marys Lake, and the southern portion of the town of Estes Park come into view.
