Great trail for truck drivers that run. My wife and I park at the Pilot Travel Center, I-80 exit #6, go south under the interstate to access the trail near one of the restrooms. Flat paved surface, well maintained, with exercise equipment near the fishing ponds.


Grizzly Lake Trail

Grizzly Lake is a beautiful trail, accessible to hikers and horseback riders. Also a fun place to fish or swim if it's warm enough. Plenty of wildflowers in early summer, and the aspens are nice in fall. There has been some recent trail maintenance, so not as muddy as it used to be. Just watch out for cattle in the meadows, and make sure to give the bull plenty of space!


Clear Lake Loop

This is such a beautiful hike. It's not too treacherous, it's dog/kid friendly, and it's a good cool option when it's really hot in the valley.

Beautiful resort in a beautiful part of the country. They get mountains of snow here too, so always great skiing over the winter.
