Dillon Reservoir

Recreational reservoir between Dillon and Frisco.

Reviewed By mwcw - new Mexico

The Lake Dillon Rec Path is a scenic route that follows the shoreline, travels through towns, over the dam and on into Keystone resort or back to Frisco via Swan Mt. Rd. There are many access points but currently, the Frisco Marina trail head has a detour along Summit Ave due to trail reconstruction. The trail varies in difficulty from easy to more challenging. There are a series of rolling hills along the lake where the trail also narrows. This section can be problematic on weekends when there are hundreds of bikers, many of whom have not cycled much and don't know how to handle the hills. The section that crosses the dam gives one outstanding views of the lake. There is also a short section that meanders through Dillon before re-connecting with the path. About two miles outside of Keystone, the trail crosses the Snake River and there is a bathroom and picnic tables off to the right. Shortly after this, the trail branches right which takes you to Swan Mt. Rd and a path back to Frisco. Continuing straight across the highway will take you to a scenic ride along the Snake River and into Keystone resort. The entire ride either via Swan Mt. Rd. or Keystone and back is a 18-20 miles and well worth the effort. The views are amazing and you'll be glad you persisted.

Lily Pad Lake

Reviewed By cheribree2016 - Silverthorne, Colorado

This trail is now out of control. So overused that the county is beginning to ticket cars parked illegally. You cannot park in the road and obstruct traffic including the Summit Stage. Park at the transfer station in Silverthorne and ride up.

Frisco Historic Park and Museum

The Frisco Historic Park & Museum preserves and promotes the Town of Frisco's heritage and history by presenting an excellent educational museum experience to the community and its visitors, connecting the past, present and future to the world around us.

Reviewed By RICART75 - Peru, Indiana

This museum village is very well presented. The staff person who welcomed us was friendly and informative.
Admission is free (though donations are very much appreciated). The local community/government realizing the benefit of supporting this asset, wisely helps with funding.
The main building houses recently upgraded displays, providing a wealth of information on the area. The railroad diorama is not only a nice perspective, but it's fun to watch.
The easily accessible out buildings are well conceived (with the audio & video narratives being an added plus); and offer one a sense of what life must have been here 100-150 years ago.
One of the joys of travel, for us, is learning about the historic uniqueness (and similarities) of communities across the country. This attraction certainly fits that objective.
This museum is a definite "must stop", if one is visiting the area.

Loveland Pass

Reviewed By 2BEis2SKI - Charlotte, NC

Worth a quick stop. This is one of those spots that you can remember for a lifetime. It's a spectacular view in all directions.

In the winter, there is pretty much always someone there coming or going from back country skiing. I'm forever envious of those folks.

Unless the wind is crazy strong, interrupt your drive and get out and be in the moment. You won't regret it.

Dillon Marina

We offer boat rentals, sailing school and tours, service department, retail store offering logo merchandise, snack, drinks, ice cream and ice. But more than that, we offer an experience of a lifetime.

Reviewed By Doug S - Melville, New York

If your in the area it is a must. Go down to the marina and enjoy lunch at the Tiki Bar. You cant go wrong. Then rent a boat. Very affordable and the lake is very easy to get around. We rented a boat for 3 hours and it was well worth it and was just the correct amount of time

Outlets at Silverthorne

Reviewed By RICART75 - Peru, Indiana

The main difference between this and many other outlet malls, is that these shops are spread out over 3 separate areas.
There are a number of shops from which to choose; offering a variety of items.
As with most of these malls, the items being sold are over-priced retail merchandise; now being available at a more reasonable cost.
The best part of this whole enterprise; is the breathtaking scenery surrounding the area.

Reviewed By Dave B - Silverthorne, Colorado, United States

This is a great place for a change in activity. While the locals tend to spend their time on the exercise machines and in classes, this is a great place to swim or wade in the multiple pools or soak in the large hot tub. Kids will love the water slides.

Frisco Adventure Park

The Frisco Adventure Park is minutes from Frisco's charming Main Street, and in the winter, hosts a lift assisted tubing hill and a beginner ski/ride hill, as well as over 45k of cross-country ski/snowshoe trails and horse drawn sleigh ride dinners. The beginner ski/ride hill located adjacent to the tubing hill offers lessons taught by Copper Mountain instructors in the most laid back and easy going environment possible- a friendly surface lift to get you up the hill, a cozy lodge, free parking right next to the hill and instructors who will help you graduate to the "big mountain" at Copper. But remember- you can tackle this hill without instructors if you choose, and it is perfect for kids and adults alike. The Adventure Park sits on the beautiful Frisco Peninsula and is surrounded by Dillon Reservoir affording unforgettable water and mountain views in every direction. And in the summer, the Frisco Adventure Park boasts great free amenities including miles of mountain biking/hiking/running trails, a bike park, a skate park and a disc golf course. Camping is also available on National Forest Service land on the Peninsula. The Adventure Park Day Lodge offers free bathrooms and a comfortable base camp for activities year-round and hosts special and private events including weddings, family reunions, bike/running races and birthdays.

Reviewed By Inessa L

It was so much fun! We went to the earliest session at 10 am and it wasn't crowded at all. However, 11 am session already had a crowd.
Tubing is really fun and the first couple of rides are so exiting and full of adrenaline, especially when the staff spins you. But how already was mentioned before, it gets boring after 30 min. 1 hour was more than enough for us. The magic carpet ride up the hill takes a while. And even though we didn't have to wait to take a ride down the hill, we did a total of 8 rides down in 1 hour.

Dillon Amphitheater

Reviewed By David C - Frisco, Colorado

Whether it is a night-time performance by a jazz, blues or country music band or the famous July 4th concert this is a very pleasant place to attend and listen. Very informal and no reserve seating, but finding a place to park may be difficult if you don't go early. If you need back support bring your own portable sear.. You can find out who is playing by reading the Summit Daily, a free local newspaper.
