The loss of the Sander Lake trailhead in 2011 eventually led to the development of the Gudjonson trailhead and Sternwheeler trail. Sternwheeler was a two year project by GCC and was started in 2012 with a connection to 2% and then in 2013 with a connection to Canyon Creek. The second phase to Canyon Creek makes for a more strenuous climb and it is recommended as a downhill ride.
