Description

The Lyons Trail can be accessed from the Hogback Trail. It is a much more technical and winding trail as compared to its brother, the Hogback Trail. While the Hogback Trail is mainly a jeep road, the Lyons trail is a singletrack that weaves in, out, and through open meadows.

Heading from south to north, there is a much more elevation gain and loss as compared to the Hogback Trail, making it ideal for those looking for more of a challenge.

Flora & Fauna

This trail offers wonderful wildflower viewing, but can sometimes get overgrown.
