“A quick, moderate loop with great valley views.
— Brian Smith
From the Dry Lake parking lot, this easy-going trail splits off from Spring Creek a few feet from the road. The wide tread, gentle switchbacks, and relaxed grade make climbing to the viewpoint a breeze. Enjoy—you guessed it—panoramic views of the Yampa River Valley, Flattop Mountains, and Continental Divide before descending an equally mellow portion of trail.
