Description

The first mile climbs gradually through the trees then it seems to level out for about three miles. Once you cross Vance Creek, it begins to climb slowly once again. The forest opens up to a meadow where 700 acres of forest burned in the 1968 Lincoln Lake Fire. Elk graze in this newly developed meadow. The last mile drops steeply and may be a little rocky.
