This was a great place to visit with our group! We had several children, all under age 8. The main trail around the reservoir was stroller friendly. There are several other smaller trails going away from the reservoir which we did not do. The scenery...More

A nice way to get acclimated to the altitude. Not too hard, not too long. Just an easy way to get a little exercise.

Great location, short hike & amazing views. Sawmill is a must see for any visitor in Breckenridge! Bring your camera, lunch & plenty of water to take in the views from all sides of the reservoir.

this is a spot that was greatly under-rated and didn't have many reviews. It is a beautiful area and has wonderful walking paths.

This is a great place if you like to fish or have an easy hike. Great place to take little kids to explore. Parking is limited but very few people will venture to this place because it is not hard core hiking. I enjoyed sitting...More

The Sawmill Reservoir hike is an easy and scenic introduction to hiking in Summit County. It is right in Breckenridge at the Snowflake lift. The trail is well marked with good tread and parallels Sawmill Creek. It's about ½ mile in distance and a very...More

This trail is really the best of both worlds-short enough for kids and older adults, yet beautiful and filled with excellent picture taking opportunities! We ran into some locals who told us it is a favorite spot for moose, but we did not see any...More

If you want to do a hike while in Breckenridge, then I recommend the Sawmill Reservoir pathway. It begins under the Snowflake Lift (4 O’Clock Road & Kings Crown Road) and ascends from there. The terrain is pretty easy and the gurgling creek is so...More

Right off a residential street. You can drive to Sawmill Reservoir in 10 minutes from anywhere in Breckenridge. A very photogenic reservoir surrounded by pines and a mountain backdrop. The short hike around the reservoir is relatively flat and easily completed by anyone. A free...More

Great hiking trail. We are in our 80's and found the trail not difficult. We enjoyed this hike very much. The trail is along a beautiful river and we saw a weasel.

I think it took us an hour and a half. We also took a break at the pond.
