Directions: From I-70 exit at the Frisco Exit, go around the traffic circle and head south on Route 9 (Summit Blvd). Turn left on 10 Mile Drive and the trailhead will be on the left...behind the Taco Bell...
Willow Preserve is a short but scenic nature trail located in Frisco near the west end of Lake Dillon at the base of the Tenmile Mountain Range. The preserve has a boardwalk and interpretive signs along the way but the real draw of this area is the view. Across Lake Dillon Grays and Torrey's Peaks (both 14ers) rise in the distance. To the west, Ten Mile Peak's sharp summit towers overhead and to the north Buffalo Peak commands appreciation. This is more of a viewpoint then a hike, but if you are looking to stretch your legs after a long drive on I-70, this is a great spot to do so.
