Carmen shares her passion with the community by providing monthly guided hikes, and snowshoe trips, through our beautiful backyard of endless trail systems.
Directions: From Interstate 80, take the Big Bend exit (1-1/2 miles east of Cisco Grove and 6 miles west of the Soda Springs exit). From the exit ramp, follow old Highway 40 for 0.9 mile to the plowed parking area on the north side of the road. A Forest Service block building with a pit toilet is at the west end of the parking area. (Rainbow lodge is a quarter mile east of the trailhead)
Each of the three lakes possesses its own unique charm. The open terrain near the beginning of the trip & around the lakes periodically provides fine views of the surrounding countryside.
Distance: about 6-8 mi. round trip, some clamoring and rock stepping terrain can be strenuous crossing depending on your ability
