Runner Notes

This is an awesome, albeit crowded running trail!

Description

The Jean Lunning Trail enters the Indian Peaks Wilderness and continues west along the south side of Long Lake on a wide, gentle trail with several bridges. If you're looking for a shorter journey, turn right on Pawnee Pass Trail to complete a 4.1-mile loop from the trailhead around Long Lake. This trail can be snow packed until later in July.
