Lake Loop Trail in Barr Lake State Park is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Denver Area and enjoy a beautiful hike. The park says this is "an 8.8-mile trail for hikers, horseback riders and bicyclists follows the perimeter of the lake. There are shorter walks to the various boardwalks that extend over the lake. An easy 1.3-mile walk from the Nature Center brings you to the Gazebo Boardwalk, where you can get an excellent view of the rookery using a spotting scope." There are no campgrounds in Barr Lake State Park.
