“The most popular trail in southeast Idaho and a great beginner trail to start with for those new to running.

Keep your distance from the moose. They see thousands of visitors a year, but are still wild animals. They can sometimes be found on the trail, especially during the winter.

The only challenge with this trail is that it can get really busy during the weekends. Go early to avoid the crowds.
This is an easy run that can be done any time of the year. The snow stays compacted on the trail during the winter with all the winter use, and the only major obstacle is during the spring melt and dealing with wet shoes. This is a great option for new runners or runners looking for a scenic, easy outing.
Moose live up at the lake in the summer and migrate and live close to the trailhead during the winter. Deer and mountain goats may be seen along the way as well. Pine trees and wildflowers are abundant.
