This trail starts off very steep but tapers off a bit when you reach treeline. Didn't make it to the saddle, will have to go back to do that.

Trail begins off Peru Creek and travels through pines and aspens emerging on the shoulders of Lenawee Mountain. Above the tree line, the trail rises to the rock formations from which beautiful views of historic Montezuma, Dillon Lake and surrounding ranges can be viewed.

We could only go a few miles in due to heavy snow covering the trail, past our knees in some areas. By there were incredible views and can't wait to go back later in the summer. The gate was also closed at he parking area off the road, so we had to walk 1.25 miles to the trail head. We did, however, see a moose grazing on our way back to the car.
