Mytoge Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This 20-mile loop begins innocuously enough. Following the cinder-surfaced Lakeshore National Recreation Trail along Fish Lake, you dart in and out of aspen stands—some of them particularly beautiful, underscored by a ground covering of tight little bursts of shrub juniper. Things quickly get more difficult after 4.5 miles, as you face a series of challenging switchbacks. Much of the ensuing climb will be walked by mere mortals.

A mile into it you come to a park bench overlook (none too soon), where you can take a load off and enjoy a long gander. Once you get on top the trail is still signed as the Lakeshore NRT, which is a misnomer of magnificent proportion, since by now you’re 1,000 feet above the lake. Relatively new single-track on top feeds into a four-wheel-drive road passing the Crater Lakes, which are followed by a very difficult descent that beats you up en route back to the lower lands. General location: 45 miles southeast of Richfield."
