Dillon Peninsula Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Dillon Reservoir Recreation Area offers easy hiking opportunities in the Dillon Nature Preserve Open Space. The mostly flat gated dirt 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. Various combinations of the two trails and road provide shorter or longer walks all with fantastic views of Dillon Reservoir, Dillon, the Gore Range, and the Tenmile Range.

Interpretive signs created by fourth and fifth graders at Dillon Valley Elementary School add insight into the area and its inhabitants, both wild and human. The Dillon Nature Preserve contains two trails but is first and foremost a nature preserve. Keep your eyes open for fox, pine squirrels, deer, red-tailed hawks, and ospreys. Being lower than many trails in central Summit County, the snow melts sooner and the flowers bloom earlier here."

"This mostly flat, gated dirt road to the west portal of the Roberts Tunnel is hikable year-round. Because this trail is lower in elevation than many trails in central Summit County, the snow melts faster and the flowers bloom earlier here. Keep your eyes open for foxes, 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. Snowshoe, walk, or ski in the winter." Read more
