Overview

Grizzly Lake is a difficult rock crawling trail that takes you over one demanding challenge at the start to steal your attention, and then never gives that attention back till the trail run is over. This trail combines all aspects of rock crawling into less than 3 miles. With ledge climbs, water crossings, shelf roads, off camber leans, and tight squeezes between trees, the trail finally rewards you for your courage by providing epic Rocky Mountain views at its ending point. Bring your camera, bring your fishing rod, but most importantly, bring a well equipped vehicle as the trek to Grizzly Lake is certainly an adventurous one.
