Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Oowah Lake trailhead is where the trail from Warner Lake exits on the road just before Oowah Lake. See map below for other trailhead locations in the area.

This is a popular use area by multiple types of users: hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrian users.  Please respect one another and observe standard trail etiquette: mountain bikers yield to both hikers and equestrian users and hikers yield to equestrian users.

This road is closed by a gate in winter at the La Sal Mountain Loop road. We open the gate in spring when the road is passable.
