Description

West Lake Trail #351 begins at the Cayuse Equestrian Trailhead within the Granite Basin Recreation Area. It passes through a mixed forest of ponderosa pine and alligator juniper as it as it travels toward Granite Basin Lake.

The trail crosses a creek several times. Although the creek is usually dry, its banks are lined with dense vegetation that is nourished by occasional flows. After its junction with Mint Wash Trail #345, West Lake Trail #351 turns southwest and crosses Granite Basin Road before it ends at Balancing Rock Trail #349.

This trail is open to hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bicyclists. Please be considerate of other users. Dogs must be on leashes; please clean up after pets. Restrooms are available at the parking area. Other amenities at the trailhead include water for horses, hitching posts, and picnic tables.
