We wanted a short hike to do on our way home from Vail and found Officers Gulch on All Trails. This 1.1-mile trail outside of Frisco is short with little elevation gain and while it's right next to the highway the views are gorgeous and the lake is crystal clear. This is a perfect hike for kids, older or little pups, and those just getting acclimated to the elevation. Save this post for your next trip!
