Lily Mountain Trail is an out and back trail located near Estes Park, Colorado. It’s used for hiking, walking, nature trips and birding, and you’ll also see beautiful wildflowers. The first part of the trail is a gradual climb through pine forests, which then steepens as you climb the mountain. It goes over the summit, though the last ¼ mile of the trail may be harder to follow. From the summit, you can see Longs Peak, Estes Park and Twin Sisters Peak.
