Route Description for Tom Benoff Lake Trail

The Tom Benoff Lake Trail is the perfect nature walk to explore the diverse Colorado wilderness. This well maintained, well-marked trail is suitable for hikers of all skill levels and kids, so you have no excuse! Lace up those sneakers and head out on the Tom Benoff Lake Hike.

The Tom Benoff Lake Trail is a circuit hike; thus, can be completed in either direction, but we prefer to track clockwise! From the parking lot, head north along the Tom Benoff Lake Trail. Hike along the shore’s edge until you meet a bridge. Cross the bridge over Clear Creek and the route will divert you south alongside the east shores of Georgetown Lake. Travel the wooded path that hugs the curves of the shoreline. As you trek along the path, it will become increasingly exposed as you traverse a meadow.

At this point the route will begin to curve west. Hike across another bridge before the path veers north. Hike along the trail until it delivers you back to the parking lot.
