“A mellow trail through the aspens and willows next to the stream. A good opportunity for some solitude close to town.”— Nick V
The trail changes to singletrack and starts climbing on moderate gradients into the lodgepole forest towards the end at Lily Pad Lake trail. This trail connects into a network of social trails leading up to the homes in Wildernest (in general keep to the left to stay on Salt Lick Trail). This is a very nice trail for easy mountain biking, near the top the trail splits and no bikes are allowed on the last 1/2 mile of the trail, which makes this section a bit easier to run. This trail sees surprisingly low use considering how close it is to town. You'll be largely alone until you get to the busy Lily Pad Lake Trail.
Once you get to the Lily Pad Trail at the top, you're only about 1/4 mile away from the lake, and it's a worthwhile trip!
