Runner Notes

A nice level trail run.

Description

Start at the signed trailhead and run along an old road through an older, airy stand of lodgepole pines. The trail continues on the road entering an old burn area and bounces between burned and unburned stands of trees with the occasional meadows.

The trail leaves the old road and commits itself to being a trail as it curves to the northwest, continually alternating between burned and unburned stands of trees with no views to speak of. Right before it reaches the lake, it dives into a cooler, older stand of trees, then pops out right at the lake's shore.

The lake is surrounded by meadows with some shorelines that area a little marshy. Waterfowl are in abundance from the namesake grebes to diving ducks and even some swans. The trail follows the shoreline, eventually connecting with the Howard Eaton Trail: Cascade Lake-Norris Campground where you can head west to go to Wolf and Ice lakes or east to Cascade Lake.

Flora & Fauna

Small mammals such as chipmunks, squirrels, and weasels along the way. Forest birds such as chickadees and finches are common along the trail while waterfowl dominate the lake itself.
