Hiked Shram Creek trail on Sept 2, 2018 up to Rock Springs trail then turned east to Lizard Lake trail and back down Lizard Lake trail to start of Shram Creek. Made for a nice out and back loop. Shram Creek Trail has some beautiful mature aspen groves and a large, very scenic meadow about half way up where you can see the Amos Backbone cliffs quite well. Nice mix of evergreens and aspens. About 60-70% shade along entire route. Except for a little trickle in Shram Creek way up where it crosses Rock Springs trail, the creeks were all dry in Sept and Lizard Lake was a tiny mud hole. It appears in spring or early summer that you'll cross several streams. Shram Creek trail is well marked. Lizard Lake trail is not marked but well used and easy to follow down. It did seem a bit steeper than Shram in parts. Shram is a moderately sloped, pretty trail that I will try again.

Splendid little hike. A little steep at the beginning but not too bad. We ran into a lot of bikers and horse riders and not so many hikers. There were a lot of beautiful views. I would definitely do this again. YOLO

The beginning of the trail is pretty steep, but I was looking for a workout so I didn't mind. There is beautiful scenery during the walk. We didn't like the large amount of horse poop on the trail, and the trail was very dusty.

Beautiful! Lots of trees. Passes through several meadows. Majority in shade when we went. Bit of a dusty trail, but very nice hike.
