OK! Let's go hiking!
Old Wagon Trail: A must in the summer, it is wildflowers galore! You also get a crazy view of the Frank Slide.
Chester Lake: A beautiful hike through forest and meadow. The lake is gorgeous, and you have a 360-degree view of the mountains. You can extend the hike further and head to Elephant Rocks, a very cool rock formation.
Junction Falls: The end is worth it. The falls are beautiful! You can climb to the top of them as well if you're feeling more adventurous. You also get the chance to see about 1,000 cows, which is a selling feature.
Sundance Canyon Trail: You get to climb through a super awesome canyon. Climbing up the rock stairs made me feel like Gollum leading the hobbits into Mordor, lol.
Troll Falls: You get to go 100% goblin mode here! The falls are frozen in the winter, and you can sneak behind them!
Grotto Canyon: You walk through a canyon into an area of waterfalls. In the winter, there are a lot of ice climbers here! Make sure to bring your Crampons to this spot in the winter, it is very very icy!
