This trail was awesome! I started from Lester's trail, all the way up to the top on Horse Lake Trail (clockwise) and finished back at Lester's. The whole trail is very smooth and flowy. About 2/3 of the way up, the climb gets pretty steep (going from about 5.5% grade to 8.9%). It is a very exposed ride for most of it, but as soon as you get to the forest at the top and pop over the summit, you can see some very tall, jagged peaks in the background and there are wildflowers, lush grasses, and singing birds. This was one of my favorite rides. Apparently, it is mostly like this in the springtime.
