“A quiet, lakeside trail with views across Ralph Price Reservoir toward Allenspark and Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park.”— Zander Göpfert
This northern shore can get hot in the direct sun and the tree cover becomes more sparing as it heads west. Bring water, sunscreen, and a snack or two (or picnic!) as this will require some time and energy to get to.
The western end of this trail accesses the Inlet Loop and the western section of the Longmont Dam Road, which heads north to the Johnny Park Shortcut.
