Lily Pad Lake is a very popular destination reachable from two different trailheads. This hike description starts on the Meadow Creek Trail near Frisco, which provides the most diverse scenery and wildflowers. Lily Pad Lake itself contains only a few lily pads (yellow pond lilies), but a nearby smaller lake contains many, especially along the shore. Buffalo Mountain towers above the lake. Good views of the Frisco area can be seen along the trail. When you arrive at Lily Pad Lake, the bigger of the two lakes, you might wonder why it has so few water lilies on it. The lake used to be smaller, but beavers built a dam and enlarged it. (Look for the old beaver lodge near the southwest shore.) The yellow pond lilies did not like the enlarged lake, perhaps because of the change in depth or water fl ow. They prefer shallow (no more than 6 feet deep) and quiet water. The pond lilies’ leaves (pads) are connected to a stem that is attached to a rootstock (a rhizome with roots) that grows sideways.
