Hiking

this is a backroads hike on the Blacktail Nordic trail. I usually snowshoe this trail so it was nice to see it in a different season. I would rate it "easy" with beautiful views.

This is basically a logging road and a XC ski trail. Not for hiking at least. Not worth the drive up.

Great hiking trails all over, if your looking for a great trail to off-road try the Wild Bill trail. Lots of fun near by.

The reviews and photos for this “trail” are all over the place. Some of the photos are on the xcountry ski trail, others appear to be on the Lakeside to Blacktail trail which is NOT a loop. It appears from other reviews that people did not even know where they were. Very untrustworthy, and not dependable.

flat & easy. A small stream in the first mile. Not too many good overlooks. The Alpine Loop that cuts through the to the right follows a very deep gorge.

Walking

We didn't walk the whole way. It's along logging roads.

9 miles of uphill. Well, the last bit is straight downhill. So, 7 mules of a graduated uphill with nice views of the Rockies. The last couple miles is rolling up and down before you take a plunge with twists and turns. Definitely worth the ride. We took our time and rode for about 3 hours. We would rate this moderate and the downhill a bit more than moderate.
