The trail around Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park is short, flat, and very scenic. I took my parents there on their recent Colorado vacation. We ate lunch on one of many picnic tables near the trailhead and then strolled the short route around the lake. The trail is well groomed, totally flat, and suitable for everyone. The views change constantly providing a great deal of variety in a short distance.
The lake is well stocked with fish and you can actually see them in the outlet stream and even larger specimens along the lake shore.
Looking southwest in early October on my first visit. Note the fisherman standing well out in the water
