An easy loop along Rogers Lake and back through an alpine forest.

Runner Notes

Short but good for trail running.

Description

This loop trail has two different starting points. You can start at the south end of Rogers Lake or the north end. I chose the south and went in a clockwise direction. This is recommended if you are running in the late afternoon as I did. The sun will be at your back during the section that has full exposure to the sun. This direction also offers great views of the San Fransisco Peaks. The trail is flat and easy the first mile along the lake, which had hardly any water that can be seen from the trail. It is more of a basin that fills after the winter melt.

After the first mile, you reach the northern parking area and a viewpoint. Cross Route 231, and to the right you'll see the trail ascend slightly into the forest. There is a cattle gate to pass through. Be sure to close the gate and latch the chain. This type of gate is at both ends of the forest section. The trail meanders through the trees back south to complete a pleasant loop of about 2.6 miles.

Flora & Fauna

This is a popular location to observe bald eagles and elk. The best viewing times are early morning (sunrise).
