"The South Saint Vrain Trail is very steep in the first mile from the eastern trailhead. Then it becomes more gradual as it continues to the west. Unlike the Brainard Lake area, no entry fee is charged, and much of the frequent heavy winds in the Brainard Lake area are avoided due to the lower elevation. This is a good forest trek with many aspen trees and few vistas. Snowshoers will have the easiest time on the South Saint Vrain Trail. The narrow, twisting trail will tax the cross-country skier. Climbing skins are recommended for the initial third of this tour." Read more
