Beautiful, relaxing trail!
The trailhead is right on the side of 89. Limited parking.
I went to Scott’s Lake and back, so not the full loop.
Lots of trees were turning, especially around the lake. I went on the 8th of October.
I saw a couple of guys mountain biking on the trail. They seemed to be having a pretty tough time. So wouldn’t recommend for biking.
Scott’s Lake itself was not anything to write home about. The water was very low and it smelled.
Dog friendly!
