The foot bridge access

Valley of the Five Lakes — Biking

A clas­sic trail that is fair­ly busy for hik­ers and bik­ers alike. There are a cou­ple of ways to access the­se beau­ti­ful lakes. For this post, we were on bikes using trails, 1, 9 and 12 to com­plete a loop from town.

Right from town, we head for Old Fort Point where you can catch Trail 1 and con­nect with Trail 9 then com­ing out of the south access trail­head for Val­ley of the Five Lakes. This park­ing lot is quite small and often the vehi­cles are parked along the 93 Ice­field Park­way.

Rid­ing a bike gives you many options to divert to oth­er trails. Plus you do not need to find park­ing or burn any fos­sil fuel.

Trail 12 has devel­oped quite well for the folks who don’t want to be too deep into the back­coun­try and access to their camp­sites and bun­ga­lows.
