Description: The Placita trail is the access trail to the Lily Lake trail. The trail goes through large dense stands of aspen and then pine at the upper end. It is very steep so don't over-exert yourself. The majority of the traffic on this trail is horses in the fall hunting season. Hikers, please be considerate and
allow the horses right-of-way. The trail ends at its junction with the Lily Lake trail.
Directions: From Carbondale travel south on Hwy 133 fro 20 miles until you see the Placita trail sign on the left side of the road near the bridge. Drive 1/4 mile up the road to the trailhead.
