Description

Trail #1032

Only non-motorized travel is permitted on this six mile long trail and it is anticipated that the predominant use will be that of mountain bikers. It is a "connector" trail from Mount Werner to Long Lake and functions to compliment the existing trails in the area by forming a loop for hikers & mountain bikers. It connects 25 miles of summer-use trails within the Steamboat Ski Area to a system of Forest Service trails which includes the Fish Creek Falls Trail 1102 (National Recreation Trail), Wyoming Trail 1101 (Continental Divide National Scenic Trail) and Percy Lake Trail 1134 that continues into the Parks District.

From the Storm Peak trailhead, the Mountain View Trail takes the user on 5 miles of single-track; 4 miles on a ridge east of the Steamboat Ski Area then 1 mile north to Long Lake Reservoir. At Long Lake Reservoir the trail picks up an existing two-track road for another mile up to FDR 310.
