We tried this trail for the first time in the winter, a mild winter. The trail had been hiked as well as cross country skiers. We rode from the parking lot, past Beaver Lake (2kms in) and continued up the slight grade. Watching over the trees on the right side of the trail, the view of the ridge is great. Then further up the trail the trees on the left hand side disappear and another incredible range towers over the trail. As I followed another rider we came up to a sign telling us the First Summit Lake was ahead and Jacques Lake was up to the right another 8 kms. We chose to go to the First Summit Lake as it was a bit of a workout to get there thru the snow. When the trail opened onto the lake on either sides it is truly awe inspiring.
