Family Friendly: It is an easy trail that is close to a developed community.
This multi-track trail is a ski trail in the winter and multi-use trail in the summer. It winds along the southern end of the Serene Lakes community in the Lodgepole/Fir forest of the Royal Gorge open space area on Donner Summit. Along the way it overlaps the Royal Gorge Rim Trail
until the two divert south of Serene Lakes.
The trail is part of a network of trails that provide access to the open space area. It can be traversed in both directions and is open to hiking and mountain biking in the summer and skiing in the winter. You must have a valid trail pass from the Royal Gorge ski resort to ski it in the winter. It is usually groomed for both Nordic and skate skiing by the resort.
