beautiful and quiet!

Gorgeous views and scenery. Bring Off, lots of bugs on the trail, but honestly it's a bonus, means not well trafficked, and you'll see that when you are up there. I started on the Penitente Canyon route, then finished on Blue Sky, enjoyed having the option.

Beautiful lake with a really accessible and easy hike in. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is the number of people there.

Excellent mountain biking here. Fun and technical, similar to Mag 7 or Sovereign in Moab. Ride the A loop clockwise for a warmup. Then go back for a second lap and take Witches Canyon and return on the B loop.

Nice little hike up a narrow canyon with interesting rock formations. Saw some climbers, but the cliffs weren't high enough to make it exciting (although I am sure it felt much more exciting at the top of the cliff looking down). From the top, we explored mountain bike trails back to the trail head.

The trail was steep and rough in places, with loose rock and a bit of scrabbling. I wish I had taken a hiking pole to negotiate some of the less knee-friendly areas.

Trout Creek trail is an ATV trail that is also great for mountain biking. Not your typical ATV trail that is rutted, rocky, and torn up, this trail is well built and maintained. You could also call it the Switchback trail because there are tons of them! The trail traverses two ridges to get back to the creek, approx 500 ft of climbing each ridge, so by the time you reach the creek you will have climbed about 1000 ft. Remember you will climb about the same amount getting out as you did getting in. The most popular way to do this trail is an out and back. 4 miles one way to the creek, or you can push on further where a singletrack branches off of the ATV trail. The singletrack climbs a lot of elevation and is very rocky. There are some huge cliffs and boulders along Trout Creek that would be great for rock climbing.
