This is an easy connector from the Lake to the start of the Barker Pass Climb. Family friendly valley floor trail. This trail starts at the end of Grand Avenue (off Hwy 89), and pops out at the bridge across Blackwood Creek. It's a popular neighborhood trail with creek access and spots for dogs to splash and swim. Gorgeous aspens too. Can have a few wet spots early in the spring.
This is the preferred way to head up to Barker Pass road if you've got an MTB/gravel bike.
