This is an out and back to the beautiful 4-Mile Basin Mountain Lake. Bring a lunch and enjoy the view at the top, before coming back down. Feel like a little more riding? Ride over to Lower Twin Lakes to see another mountain lake before you come back out. The trail is fairly new and and non-technical until the last mile to the lake. This mile is a classic old trail that will challenge you.

Access Info

You can drive the old dirt road near the bottom of Spring Hill, up to the trailhead(a vehicle with good clearance is recommended). You can add a bit more to the ride by parking at the Spring Hill Picnic Area and riding the dirt road up to the trailhead. This doesn't take much more time for fit riders then driving in, but coming out is actually much faster on a bike then driving.
