Trail shared by Nick Wilder

Stunning views over five lakes marred by dirt roads and ski area infrastructure.

Nick Wilder

Features Lake · Views

Overview

This is not a trail per se, but an extremely popular, and now specifically named and signed set of dirt roads that connects 5 lakes between the Blauherd and Sunnega lift stations. The views are phenomenal, but the roads are not nearly as nice as the singletrack trails in the area, and you're in the heart of the ski area, which seems to have construction projects around every corner.

Description

From the top of the Blauherd lift, follow the well-signed route. It starts in high alpine territory and is rocky with little vegetation. As you descend, it tends to get prettier with more larch trees, berry bushes, and pines. You'll make turns, using both roads and trails, but this route is very well-marked, so you won't get lost... unless you really can't take your eyes of the Matterhorn reflected in the lakes.
