Trail Overview

This is a short in and out trail with great scenic overlook views. The short drive begins traveling through a large grove of aspen trees and continues to Pelican Canyon. Climbing in elevation you begin to get glimpses of Fish Lake below. As you reach the top, the trees clear and your reward is majestic views of Fish Lake and the Boulder Mountains. Several hiking trails which originate here lead even higher into the mountainside.
