Runner Notes

This is a nice easy trail for running.

Description

This trail presents a gradual, 7-mile climb to Misty Moon Lake. Expect to be in and out of trees, crossing a creek in the first mile, and then on pretty much dry trail for the rest of the way. We went in early August when there was a little rain and hail every evening, but, overall, it was pretty nice weather, between 50-80 degrees.

Flora & Fauna

Indian paintbrush, large mushrooms, and lots of other Wyoming wildflowers can be viewed along this trail. Several cow moose and elk with calves were enjoying the trail as well.
