“Access the Bigelow Lakes and the summit of Mount Elijah from Forest Road 70.”— Bruce Hope
This trail provides the easiest and most direct access to the Bigelow Lakes from the west. Back in the day, it was how you got to the now abandoned fire lookout on Lake Mountain. It is also an alternative, and more direct, way to reach the summit of Mount Elijah from the west.
Despite being popular with equestrians, the trail surface is pretty good.
