A scenic connector trail/fire road between Staunton Ranch Trail and Twin Elk Lake.

Chris Fa

Overview

Park is open every day, and hours vary by season. $7 entry fee for day use
Features: Birding — Lake — River/Creek — Wildflowers
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This wide fire road climbs gently from Twin Elk Lake and becomes gradually steeper until the summit at .84 miles. The road follows a small stream that feeds Twin Elk Lake, and there is a very beautiful meadow at the .5 mile mark. Despite the relatively unremarkable, featureless trail, the scenery is very good. The trail continues downhill into a four way intersection.This downhill section becomes more rutted, featured, wooded, and narrow but is quite fun.
