Trail shared by Kristen Arendt

An easier climb into the park than the Eastern Route Trail.

Park is open from 7 a.m. to sunset. Parking is $7 per vehicle.

Description

The Western Route Trail is a nice alternative to the climb on the Eastern Route Trail and can be used in conjunction with a variety of other trails for several great loop options in the park.

The trail starts out with a gradual climb, heading past a junction on your right with the Todd Creek Trail which rejoins the Western Route Trail at just under a mile. From this junction, the Western Route Trail continues its climb, heading past the Connector Trail Loop and looping back to the north briefly before joining with the Sky Lupine Trail and coming to a junction with the Eastern Route Trail.
