The trails in the Lady Moon and Molly Lake area are unique. Even though there are over 20 miles of trails, only a couple are well developed. The remainder are old roads and stock/game trails that have become recreation trails through use.
These trails don’t see as much use except by who live at Red Feather Lakes making this an ideal trail system to find more solitude than you would on some of the more popular trails in the Roosevelt National Forest.
There is quite a bit of private property surrounding the National Forest in this area but all boundaries are marked. Also some of the trails, particularly trails through meadows, can be hard to follow in some places.
