Description

This motorized trail was reconstructed to accommodate trail bikes in 1983 with state funds. Trail follows Lake Creek through mountain meadows and thickets of lodge pole pine at a moderate climb. Three miles up the canyon the traveler will pass an old historic mining cabin. After leaving the canyon, you will begin climbing at a steeper rate ( 12% to 20% grade) and negotiate switchbacks until it reaches the attractive Round Lake where, if you have come prepared, you may catch a mess of arctic grayling! Trail makes a moderate loop to all the lakes, then drops down to the main trail again. A number of aspen and conifer trees will be noted in this area.
