Runner Notes

Fine trail running.

Description

The trail breaks off from the Clear Lake-Ribbon Lake Trail to run along a lily-pad covered pond. Views of the pond are filtered through the lodgepole forest that you're running through. You cross over the outlet stream that becomes Silver Cord Cascade, through more trees, then out to the edge of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

This is a sweet vantage of the canyon and a great spot for a snack. The Silver Cord Cascade, although right below you is mostly obscured by the rocks save the very lower section before it drains into the Yellowstone River.

Continue on the trail as it goes through some more trees to the campsite. You can continue through the campsite to the edge of the lake, but be courteous to those camping there.

Flora & Fauna

Waterfowl can be found in the lake and pond as well as some forest birds. Mega fauna such as bears and the occasional moose may be spotted, but are a function of luck.
