 There are 3 options:

1. Climb Mormon Emigrant Trail (MET) from Jenkinson Lake to top where it Ts into Hiway 88 then turn around and go back to car (48 miles, 5,500, +/-) No food or water on this route.

2. Climb MET to the 88, turn left and ride down to Kit Carson Resort (Silver Lake). Access is just after crossing the dam at Silver Lake. It’s a bit more than ½ mile from the highway. Water is available at the Silver Lake West Campground about 1/10 mile past the dam on the left side of the highway (63.5 miles, 6,797 feet of climbing, +/-).

3. Or you can keep going all the way to Kirkwood on the 88 where there is a deli with great food and water. (70 miles, just under 8,800 feet).
