You'll be at high altitude, so taking some time to acclimate, and bringing plenty of water and sunscreen is a must.
Travel on this fast and flat trail for a few miles until you reach the far Eastern side of the lake. The trail begins to climb slightly and enters into the forest along the Southern side of the lake. You'll come to an intersection, the Colorado Trail breaks off here as you continue straight. You'll soon come to the Interlaken Lodge, a turn of the century relic that is worth exploring.
Continue west along the Southern shore. The trail soon crosses the Continental Divide Trail which climbs steadily on your left. Continue straight. The next section of trail crosses a few streams that may require walking. You'll soon be riding into an area that will require a few small hikes.
Once down on the other side you'll soon cross a bridge and then back on Hwy 82. Ride 82 for a short time back to the visitor center for your well-deserved soft-serve from the market.
