Dead Horse Rim Trail:
trail accesses the roadless country found in the
vicinity of Dead Horse Rim. It also accesses
Dead Cow Trail, and the Lakes Trail system. It
travels through and along a large upland meadow
near the Lee Thomas Trailhead and then ascends
Dead Horse Rim through stands of lodgepole pines
and mature mixed conifers. As it runs along the
spine of Dead Horse Rim scenic vistas of the
Dead Horse Creek drainage and the surrounding
country are offered. The trail currently dead
ends on its southern end at the National Forest
boundary, but plans are in the works to rectify
this situation. Dead Cow Trail:
This trail provides a loop trail opportunity of
about 6 miles in length from Dead Horse Lake
down the Dead Cow Creek drainage then via the
Dead Horse Rim Trail and Lakes Trail back to
Dead Horse Lake. The Dead Cow drainage contains
an abundance of wild flowers during the spring
and early summer. This is an interesting
day-hike loop opportunity passing through a
variety of high elevation environments.
Addition Information on Trails:
This trail system offers a variety of
interconnected loops of various lengths between
Campbell and Dead Horse Lakes. There is a lower
trail and an upper trail and they are connected
at their eastern and western ends as well as by
an intertie trail approximately in the middle of
their reaches. This arrangement offers users
loop trips from five to nine miles long. The
Lakes Loop system is also connected to the Dead
Cow Trail #141, the Dead Horse Rim Trail #139
and the Cache Cabin Trail # 148 providing
approximately 24 miles of trails in this area
for Forest visitors.
Scenic vistas of the lakes and
the surrounding country are found throughout
this system, but particularly from the heights
of Campbell and Dead Horse Rims. On a clear day
the distant views from these lofty viewpoints
are spectacular and limited only by the
curvature of the Earth. The upper Lakes Loop
Trail and Dead Horse Rim Trail also access one
of the largest stands of sub-alpine white-bark
pine in the Pacific Northwest. The trail is well
signed at all junctions and has vertically
aligned rectangular blazes for reassurance
