The Coyote Loop is steeper and provides a more challenging ski trip. A clockwise direction of travel is suggested on this loop with a distance of 4.8 miles.
Lake Leo and Lions Trails are other good beginner trails with distances of 2.8 and 1.7 miles respectively.
On occasion users have the opportunity to view wildlife which include moose, deer, and elk along with smaller game animals. A warming hut is located near Frater Lake and is a place to warm yourself and visit with other skiers. This warming hut is open year-round and has plenty of wood, an outdoor toilet, picnic tables, benches, and chairs in which one might sit to savor the moment! The warming hut is non-exclusive use and overnight stays are limited to 2 nights.
Trails are groomed on an intermittent basis as snow volume and clearing of downed trees necessitate. Snowshoeing on established trails is not permitted. A 2.25 mile segment of Trail #142 shares the trail from south of Grouse Junction to Shelter Rock. This portion of trail is open to off-road motorcycle use.
