"The Lenawee Trail provides some fantastic views of Summit County and into Eagle County as you wind your way along the alpine tundra. The trail climbs 1,650 feet in the first 2 miles through thick forest. Once above treeline the trail mellows a little and the views are expansive the higher you climb. The long ridge of Lenawee Mountain lies before you. Eventually you traverse its south flank to a narrow ridge with a rocky outcrop. Continue along the trail, dropping to the top of Arapahoe Basin’s Zuma Lift for more fantastic views and colorful wildflowers. Keep an eye open for mountain goats!" Read more

Great hike. Beautiful views, saw mountain goats, and marmuts. The duration listed is allot longer then necessary. It took me 90 minutes up and about 60 back. First 2 miles is pretty strenuouse with about 2000 ft of elevation gain.
