Update

A beautiful trail that connects to the Desolation Trail and is a good route to Desolation Lake or Dog Lake.

Runner Notes

Since the trail is not too steep, and has many connections to other trails in the area, you can make it as long or short of a run as you like.

Description

Almost all of the trail follows a small creek through aspen groves and stands of fir and spruce. After about 1.8 miles, the trail meets up with the Desolation Trail. You can either go left on a 0.6 mile stretch to Dog Lake and on to one of the many other connected trails in the area, or go right to Desolation Lake.

The journey to Desolation Lake is not as popular as some others in the area, but I find it peaceful and beautiful. The lake itself isn't very large or incredibly picturesque, but it is quiet and is a good place to relax before heading back down.

Keep an eye out for moose and the occasional deer all along the trail; I have run into three moose here when rounding a corner, so be aware of your surroundings!

Flora & Fauna
