LIttle Soda Lake

We definitely will be going back in this area.  The trail options are many and are easily done by a barefoot horse in reasonably good condition.  The views are spectacular.  It has everything...forests, sage, water features, mountain views. See the post on Lowline-Glimpse Lake for more trail options from the same trailhead.

Little Soda Lake

Directions from Pinedale.  It's about 7 miles on a dirt road.

Here are two suggested parking spots. There is room for several rigs there or at the next one. The road has now been graded between the two and the second one gets you closer to the trail without having to ride an extra mile on dirt road.

This track was done on May 10, 2017.  About 7.2 miles.  Min. altitude=7,507'; Max. altitude=7,802';  Trail conditions were muddy and some snow, but also much dry ground.  20% rocky, 80% dirt, grass.  

This is NOT Little Soda, but a "pond" on the way there.

No-Name Pond...but still a really nice water feature.

There was some snow.
Spectacular view of Fremont Lake

There was a lot of deadfall.  Most of it we could circumnavigate.  This particular tree we had to saw down to get past.
One of the water features that will probably disappear later in the season.

View of  "Summit" lake.

Another water feature that we had to ride right through.
