Dillon Nature Preserve Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Dillon Reservoir Recreation Area offers easy-to-moderate hiking opportunities in the Dillon Nature Preserve Open Space. The mostly flat, gated service road to the West Portal of the Roberts Tunnel is hikable year-round, while the forested Meadow Loop and Ridge Trails can sometimes be obscured by snow.
Because the trail is lower than many in central Summit County, the snow melts faster and the flowers bloom earlier here. Keep your eyes open for fox, pine squirrels, deer, red-tailed hawks, and ospreys. Enjoy the beautiful views of the Gore Range and the Tenmile Range across the blue waters of Dillon Reservoir."
