The view from Willow Lake is really nice but the Trail to get there is full of blown down trees and a real struggle if you aren’t prepared.
Murphy’s Tavern in Silverthorne had large outdoor patio with a nice view of the mountains and a nice menu with traditional Irish fare.
So many wonderful trails to explore at Brainard Lake. I tried 13er Mt. Audubon and didn’t quite make it but am motivated to try again soon!
