Trail Overview

Todd Lake TH is a mixed dirt and gravel trail starting from Cascade Lakes Scenic Highway (Co Hwy 46) that connects to Skyliners Rd. After the Todd Lake Day Use area, only 4wd is recommended. Although most of the trail is two vehicles wide, there are many sections where you should expect to pull off if you encounter other vehicles. This trail winds through both open rocky meadows and densely forested areas with many pull-offs for dispersed camping. You will definitely see many deer along the way. Todd Lake TH is rocky with ruts and potholes. The second half of the trail runs along the border of the Three Sisters Wilderness. Along much of the trail, you can see a small creek and a waterfall that adds to the beautiful scenery of this forest road.

Difficulty

The entirety of the trail has ruts and potholes up to 18" deep. There are multiple sections of the trail that has rocks and slow travel is recommended. The last quarter (from Hwy 46) has a water crossing and it looked like there might be another water crossing that forms in the spring. Stock 4wd is capable to handle this trail but not 2wd vehicles.
