Part of the Road Apple Trails System.

To reach Lake View Trail, make a left at the beginning of the Seven Sisters downhill and continue the easy climb up to the top of the ridge on Road Apple East Trail. Look for the right hand turn off the Road Apple East Trail for the start of the singletrack. 

The trail follows a skinny ridge with some steep sections and some optional drops, a few sections can be loose. At the bottom, follow an oil road a little bit and make a right onto a fence line trail that goes back to Seven Sisters, which joins in at the dirt jumps. –MtnbProject Description.

Road Apple Trail is rolling singletrack, which starts on top of Kinsey Ridge. To the southeast, you can see the Navajo Reservoir and beyond, while to the north, you have an amazing view of the La Plata Peaks. This trail is so good, Ned Overend says it is his favorite trail!
