Trail Overview

This is a technical, enjoyable, and beautiful trail that takes you along the eastern crest of Lake Mountain with stunning 360-degree views almost the entire way. It can be run in either direction. There's more technical rock crawling on the southern end, so you'll want to decide if you'd rather go up or down them. Some of the sections are rather steep. There are multiple radio towers along the way. The difficulty rating is based on the rock crawling on the southern end of the trail which is steep and off-camber. Several sections have very sharp, jagged rocks, so be sure to have a spare and jack with you. Overall, it is a very fun and beautiful trail.

Difficulty

Expect steep, off-camber rock crawls at the southern end of the trail. A spotter is not necessary but may come in handy if you don't want to leave some metal on the rocks.
