Easy in and out. On 10/28/17 we saw a family group of moose 50 feet off the trail. Scary, but awesome once it was over.

Beautiful easy trail around a small lake.

Spotted my first ever moose on this trail, which was a total treat - and that's why I give this trail 5 stars (otherwise I prefer the more difficult routes)...she was about 30 yards away, and if hadn't been looking, I would have missed her. I only stopped long enough to snap a photo (they can be aggressive, right?), and she kept her eyes on me but didn't budge.

Pleasant walk just a few minutes drive from Nederland. Picnicking is popular around Mud Lake. Very flat and easy walk through the trees and around the lake. Pick up Caribou Ranch Link to continue over to Caribou Ranch Open Space (no dogs allowed there).
