A very cool hidden trail off Hwy 88 past Kirkwood Resort. Bring your dog, your Horse, or your Mountain Bikes. It's a moderate up hill trail through the trees with a small switchback.
A lot of fallen trees along the trail, but the scenery is worth it! At the top it looks down on Kirwood Lake on one side and the Kirwood Valley on the other side.
Check out my pics.
Did this hike during the wildflower season and the flowers and views were spectacular. Started at the charming Kit Carson Lodge and from there went up the Horse Canyon Trail and at the 2nd creek went up the big meadow to Thunder Mountain and from there proceeded north on the new loop trail which crosses Hwy 88 at the Carson Spur. The new loop trail is well engineered and provides a great round trip. Bring plenty of water.
