A great 10 mile loop around beautiful Navajo Lake. Trail is nearly entirely single track with the exception of a connecting segment of double track that is maybe 1/2 mile of the 10 mile loop. Undulating terrain. Nothing too technical. Mostly fun and flowy.

       Rode this trail mid-June. Exceptional condition. No downed trees or residual snow banks.

       Rode today clockwise. There were 3 downed trees. Fun flowy trail but could use some maintenance in a few places.

       Great fun family ride. Fun and rideable for all skill levels. Even for an experienced rider this trail can be a lot of fun.

       Rode this trail yesterday (May 30) and there were several downed trees across the south side of the lake which you have to climb over. Patches of snow which melted onto the trail and made it a little muddy at some spots.

       Read on a page that night riding is not allowed... Is that true?

       Rode this trail counter clock wise from the lower parking lot. It was flowy but I wish there were some sort of jumps or drop offs

       Found a Garmin under one of the tree crossings on the south side of Navajo Lake on 9/20/2020. Please contact me if you are missing your Garmin.

       There were 35 fallen trees on the south side of the trail. The north side still had amazing gold aspens.

       Just rode the trail that loops around the lake this morning (Oct 17)There are so many downed trees across the south side of the lake (I think it’s prob the same up on the ridge section also).
      I see where lots of big logs have been cut and moved off the trail (thank you to the folks who cleared those)!!!
      But yeah today turned into a full body workout lifting my bike up and over. North side of the lake was clear tho!

       Good trail, very beginner friendly. It doesn’t look like it connects to itself west of the west trailhead, but you can ride up or down (depending on CW or CCW) the road for 1/4 mile or so and ride it as a full loop. Lots of downed timber on the south side of the trail, but it has been fully cleared as of 5/29/2021.
