Star Lake Loop
Difficulty: Challenging | Distance: 22.68 miles | Elevation Gain: 3,550 feet |
GPS xxxxxxxx, xxxxxxx Either climb Cold Creek Trail or take High Meadows Road
This is an epic ride needing technical know-how, self-reliance, and stamina. Recommend the Cold Creek route to High Meadows. Upon arriving at High Meadows, cross the creek and travel the double track about a ¼ mile and turn left on an eroded double track and continue until you come to the Star Lake single track and turn right. Star Lake is at the base of Freel Peak – an ideal setting for lunch, possibly a swim and a contemplative time to absorb the majesty of this awe-inspiring High Sierra eco-system.
Options: Out & Back From Star Lake take the TRT single track to Monument Pass. You will arrive at a junction. Turn left on the new Monument single track and it will take you to Cold Creek Tr. Continue straight and you’ll cross the backside of Heavenly’s Canyons and arrive at Stagecoach base.
