Tenderfoot Mountain Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This small mountain packs in a lot of adventure. Despite never breaking
treeline, this is a scenic outing that involves a small section of confident
off-trail navigation to reach the top. It’s also a great quickie hike if you don’t
ascend to the summit (and there are acres of wild raspberries to be discovered in August). Tenderfoot also grants access to a ridgeline on the south
side of I-70—probably the least-hiked mountains in this corridor."

"Tenderfoot Mountain Trail offers wonderful views of Dillon Reservoir and the peaks of Tenmile Range beyond a flowery hillside. Thanks to a south-facing slope, this easygoing hike is especially fine on early season mornings and evenings. Traversing cool aspen copses, sagebrush-studded open hillsides, and lodgepole pine stands, this one-and-a-quarter-mile trail heads up at a fairly steady pace. Wildflower menus change with alternating habitats throughout the trail. A bench is located at the end of the hike for enjoying marvelous views of the water, flowers, and peaks. Wildflower Alert: This south-facing lakeview trail brings on wildflowers early in the season."
