Located in Frisco, this hike offers easy access to an adorable beaver pond nestled between pine trees. We recommend parking in the free parking area by 2nd Ave and S. Cabin Green. It is a short walk down a paved bike path to the Rainbow Lake Trailhead. The trail only has 150 feet of elevation gain, so it is relatively flat and a great hike for all ages. There is one stream crossing that is moderately difficult to cross. While this is an easier hike, we would recommend being in decent physical shape due to the remote location of the pond. This trail is dog friendly and a wonderful hike to take them on.
