Description

From the intersection with Robert Foote Trail #9047, head north on a sandy singletrack between the pines. Follow signs for Trail 9155 north on a relatively flat, sandy trail. Roughly 0.2 miles in, there is an intersection that is marked with a small cairn. Take the left (head north).

Shortly after an intersection with 9155B, there is a really nice twisting descent through some dense forest. Keep an eye out for a 12-18" log drop (fun times!), and the trail opens to a clear cut area. The trail then continues down with some great views of Lake Dillon to the intersection with Henry Recen Trail #9042 (There's no sign, but it's an obvious flume trail to your left).

This trail is fun in either direction. Mostly, it's sandy, so there are no footing issues.

This trail will take you to Mt. Royal. The trail is the stair stepper from hell, esp. for those of us, not from CO. Payoff is a beautiful view. 2mi — 2h 00m
