Though literally right across the street from the main entrance to Elk Lake, the Horse Lake Trailhead sees very little tra?c by comparison. This is primarily due to the small bit of extra e?ort required for the payout on this run. There is no perfect trail leading to the shores of Horse Lake, nor does any distinct trail lead to the number of smaller lakes just o? the main loop trail. Finding the gems requires a little bit of o?-trail navigation and gusto. For those up for an adventure, though, it’s well worth the small e?ort.
