Want a good hike? Try Laketown Canyon Trail
Park at the rodeo arena in Laketown and ride west. Head south on 200 E. At the south end of 200E., the road turns to dirt. The trail crosses the stream 7 times, so you will get wet. This is a fun trail despite the water. There is a reservoir about half way up and a spring at the top of the ride. The ride ends at a gate.
This ride begins in rather exposed terrain and climbs into Aspen groves.
