Beautiful!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Great place to take an easy, scenic stroll. Plenty of parking when we went. Amazing views from all directions. Half the lake was still iced over. Would love to see it in summer when everything is in bloom and try the paddle boats.

This is a great place for a sunrise or sunset walk. We enjoyed all the wild life and peacefulness. A must do if near Evergreen.

Beautiful lake in a great setting
Sep 2020
We walked around the lake and found the setting beautiful. An easy walk. The aspens were turning color when we were there, and what a sight!

My boyfriend grew up in Evergreen, and had been dying to get me up there and show me around. I finally made the time.

I had no idea what to expect. The only context I had were pictures of breathtaking, bright amber aspens he sent me last fall, saying he “passed by them on an afternoon walk”. I was completely dumbfounded. I thought he might have been pulling my leg. No way could he take these gallery worthy photos just because he decided to go on a walk...

Visiting myself proved me wrong.

Everything up in Evergreen looks like that. Editorial pictures right before your eyes. From the local bars that are built right into the mountain, to the mansions gracefully sitting atop hillsides, to the vast plains of tall grass. I saw three deer, a mom and two babies, just driving around a small peak. It was the closest I've ever been to a wild animal in my life. I saw a bald eagle in person for the first time, dive for a fish in the lake.

Evergreen makes for a very easy and inexpensive day trip from Denver. By highways it takes about 30 minutes to reach, but I recommend taking your time and finding the scenic routes, so you can find places to pause and take in the mountain air. In town there are plenty of locally owned boutiques, cafés, art galleries and novelty shops to browse, and live music from the patio by the dam to listen to while you do. I’m partial to the rocks and minerals house at the edge of downtown. There’s a very unique other-worldly mural on its side; you can’t miss it.

It was so easy to be present with my boyfriend in this environment. Watching people go by, I felt we were all in the same boat; we were all there for a moment free of trouble. To paint, shop, fish, walk, bike, run, hike— to relax. I felt as if the weight of my worries was being carried away by the summer breeze. I was truly at peace.

I can't wait to go back again.

Picturesque Setting!!
Sep 2020
Beautiful setting and a nice trail around the lake (about 1 1/2 miles). Great way to spend an hour - seeing lots of people, dogs etc. It is the centerpiece of a charming mountain town.

Good place to see elk in summer & fall
May 2020
Great views of lake and mountains. Full of people in summer and weekends. Easy, flat trail around lake, near downtown Evergreen & restaurants. Can rent boats, paddle boats. I've seen paddle boards. Stocked with fish, fishing year round. Smooth surface for ice skating. Picnic area, next to golf course. Elk often swim in lake.

Okay place to visit
Jan 2020
It's an okay place to visit, when you arrive at the lake good luck finding a parking place one very small parking lot that you can't hardly get into. it always full from people trying to walk around the lake and visit with Mother Nature or going fishing.

Ice skating at Christmas
Dec 2019
The 5000 sq ft lake house turns into ice skate rental,hot coco late, and the start point for pick up hockey games. My kids and their California cousins enjoy this Christmas tradition annually. In the summer, you can fish, paddle boat, or hike the nature trail. Or you might cross Little Bear to Everbean, the local coffee shop.

Love this jewel
Mar 2020 • Family
Evergreen Lake is one of the reasons we moved to Evergreen 20 years ago. It is a priceless spot to run, visit, or take in a concert.
