A State Parks Pass is needed to utilize the picnic site. The trail begins behind the last picnic table to the right before the fence. There are no toilets on site.

It’s more moderate than easy due to long incline. Nice variety with parts deep in Aspen groves and others along ridge with nice views. Seems the Sylvan Lake construction has reduced use as there were several trees felled across the trail and some overgrowth.

Love this trail when you get to the top. It should not be rated easy though. Steep incline for 2 miles.

The beginning mile has a pretty good incline. Wasn't expecting that, but has beautiful views when you turn around. About 1.6 miles up we ran into snow which caused us to turn around. Heard some loud wilflife sounds which was cool and was nice and breezy. Good workout of a hike overall
