This trail begins at Cameron Pass. The trail lies mainly on Colorado State Forest land. It follows the Michigan Ditch road for several miles on a gentler grade. It then forks to the left and becomes steeper and narrower for the remainder of the journey. The trail ends in the picturesque American lakes basin, surrounded on all sides by 12, 000 ft. peaks. There are abundant slopes for telemarking. Snowmobilers can access this area via the Seven Utes Trail.
Directions from Fort Collins: Travel west on Hwy 14 up Poudre Canyon to the top of Cameron Pass. Parking is available at the pass.
