Go West on Wildernest Rd. Continue on Ryan Gulch Rd. Turn left then Slight right at Stephanies Way
This trail is very accessible from town and is a popular trail into the Eagles Nest Wilderness. Initially, the trail travels south through thick stands of lodgepole pine and aspen. Along the way you will cross some small streams and pass by several beaver ponds. These beaver ponds attracted fur trappers during 1810-1840, the boom years of the fur trade. The lake is a great place to relax and enjoy your lunch. Moose have been seen in this area in the past. It is a privilege to be able to see one of these animals in the wild, please keep your distance and do not approach them.
