Beautiful scenery pushes you to make the next spur and see what is around the next corner. It is great for a stroll at a decent elevation. Traffic every time I have been is virtually none, leaving the trail just for me and my friends.
With the winter weather, storms can come in quicker than expected and the trail's composure can change drastically from cleared to hard pack to soft powder.
To note, there are plenty of fun treasures to see on this relaxing hike.
Climb, Adapt, and Overcome,
In true fashion, there were a lot of fellow explorers out today! Had fun with the friends but the trail was chopped up and a bit icy. Can't wait to return this summer and head up to the lakes.
Shoed it with some friends up to the American Lakes trail spur, and it is a fun, fairly flat trail with some nice snow and great views ranging from woods to the surrounding peaks. Snow ranges from fresh powder to packed by snow machines, so it is great for a group with varying experience. Connects to a few other trails, too.
