Features Birding · Lake · River/Creek · Wildflowers

Park is open every day, and hours vary by season. $7 entry fee for day use

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.
