A great loop through lodgepole pines, connecting with a variety of other trails in the area.

Expect the trail to be covered in snow from October to early July.

Description

This loop trail is a great run through a forest of lodgepole pines. The overall elevation changes are not significant although you'll encounter some ups and downs along the way. This trail is also a central hub for many of the other trails in the area as it intersects with the Boundary Springs Trail to the north, the Bert Creek Trail to the southwest, and the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) to the southeast. Most runners do not run this entire loop, it's more often used in portions as a way to link up with other trails.
