Description

The Jean Lunning Trail enters the Indian Peaks Wilderness and continues west along the south side of Long Lake on a wide, gentle trail with several bridges. If you're looking for a shorter journey, turn right on Pawnee Pass Trail to complete a 4.1-mile loop from the trailhead around Long Lake. This trail can be snow packed until later in July.
