Went over to hike this trail this morning. However, the access road is closed. So, I hiked the boggy draw trail instead. A local person I saw in the parking lot told me that there is an alternative trailhead for the McPhee trail at the very West end of Dolores near the cemetery. Will give that a try another day.

Great elevated views of the lake, challenging workout, lightly trafficked. Better than the monotonous, nearby Boggy Draw trail system. Don’t know why it doesn’t get more love on AllTrails. Could go past 7 miles, but I turned back.
