Burts Trail meanders from the Burts’ family homestead barn (lower) at Horse Lake Reserve and connects to the lower end of Glacier View Trail. It provides unique views to the north of Burch Mountain and the open spaces of the northern portion of the Reserve.
This is a 2 mile trail with 500 feet of total elevation difference between either end, connecting to the bottom end of Apricot Crisp near the old Horse Lake bed, and also to the ranch road just above the old ranch homesteads.
This trail is in the upper elevations of the Horse Lake Reserve and meanders through some wonderful wildflower patches, big fir trees, viewpoints of the Cascade Mountains, and birding territory. The trail can be reached by following the Old Ranch Road from the gate, or by taking Homestead Trail to where it connects to the Old Ranch Road.
Stop by and see the old barn as you travel the road used to manage the farm for many, many years.
