Three Lakes Trail consists of three Winter use trails: Silent Creek (2.3 miles - easiest); Mt. Bailey Trail (5 miles - most difficult); and Hemlock Butte Trail (3.6 miles - more difficult).The Silent Creek Trail originates here. A post with blue diamond and skier will be on the right. This is a fun trail, especially if someone has already broken track. You will reach Silent Creek in about 1.2 miles, where you can take the right hand loop which follows the creek on the southeast side. The intersection of the Mt. Bailey Trail is about 1.5 miles, and the Diamond Lake Loop snowmobile trail at about 2 miles. The trail picks up just across the road and intersects the Horse N' Teal Trail at a 2.3 miles. The arched bridge over Silent Creek and the quietly flowing water make this a very beautiful spot.The Mt Bailey Trail intersects the Silent Creek Trail at the 5,200 feet elevation and climbs to the northwest eventually reaching the summit at 5 miles and 8,363 feet in elevation. Obviously for the experienced skier only. This is avalanche country so don't go alone and be prepared.The Hemlock Butte Trail begins about 2 miles up the Three Lake Trail (shared with snowmobiles) and a right turn at the first intersection on the Bailey Connect Trail (shared). Ski east for about 0.2 miles to the beginning of the Hemlock Butte Trail on your left, marked by a skier symbol. It's another 1.6 miles of back country skiing to a three-room cabin open to cross country skiers. Hemlock Cabin was built by the Edelweiss Ski Club and has room for about 20 people. The Three Lakes trail is 10.8 miles long. It begins at Highway 230 at the Three Lakes Sno-Park and ends at 1589l. The trail is open for the following uses: Snowmobiling.
