The Ascent Eases

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The first section of the MacLaren Trail ascends rather steeply from the lake shore. However, by this point, the worst of the climb is behind you. Here the hike becomes much less strenuous as the trail begins to level out. Once again, a small stream is crossed with the aid of a simple plank bridge.
