This is a short trail that leads you to the rocky summit of Lily Mountain in just under two miles.
The trailhead starts from the dirt turn off on the right side of Colorado 7 about a mile north of Lily Lake.
The trail can be divided into two sections. The first section goes along the eastern edge of the mountain. It heads north and goes up down through gulches and doesn't gain much net elevation. After a mile the trail arcs south in a large switchback and starts the steep climb towards the summit. The trail switchbacks up the steep northern ridge of the mountain. The trail gets progressively rockier as it gets closer to the summit, and soem light scrambling is required to climb up onto the summit block. Descend by the same way you came up.
Snowshoes and an ice ax might be required in winter.
