Great Fall Hike Near Keystone Colorado

I recently was able to spend a couple of hours looking for a quick hike around Keystone.  It was later afternoon in the beautiful fall weather we have been having and decided to hop in the car and drive about 15 minutes over to the Tenderfoot Mountain Trail.  The trail head is easy to find.  Drive towards Dillon on Highway 6 and turn right at the first stop light in Dillon, immediately turn right again on to Highway 51.  This is really just a two lane road that goes up about a mile and you will pass the water tank for Dillon Water supply.  Drive just past this and turn right into the parking lot.  You are immediately struck with great views!  The trail is easy to find and stay on, you are zig zagging up the slope and cutting through clear areas and then into timbered areas with amazing views of Lake Dillon and the surrounding mountain ranges.  This hike is a perfect and easy fall hike for anyone staying in Keystone Resort and a great way to spend an afternoon!  I forgot my water so I also stopped by the Snake River Saloon on my way back, they were able to help me quench my thirst and their hot wings also hit the spot!  With the crowds being non existent this time of year I was able to get back to my Keystone Condo and hit the hot tub!
