Silver Jack Shoreline #129


The Silver Jack Shoreline Trail #129 begins near the East Fork inlet of the Cimarron River and follows the shoreline of the Silver Jack Reservoir.  This trail provides access to some great fishing opportunities for rainbow trout, brook trout, and kokanee salmon. It is an easy trail to follow as it heads in the direction of the dam and it crosses several small streams along the way. Three main forks of the Cimarron River and several smaller streams all feed the Silver Jack Reservoir. The trail comes to end after climbing a hillside and fading away, providing beautiful mountain scenery and outstanding views of the reservoir.
