Enjoy all the trails in the area but really love the Blue Front Tr. It is a very quiet trail and have seen lots of wildlife every time we go. Also check out the old cabin and the mine close to the trail. Saw an owl, elk and lots of other birds. Some parts require a bit of pulling yourself up to the trail.
