The Pagoda Lake Trail trail is 7.3 miles long. It begins at Rio Blanco County Road 8 and ends at Forest Road 230. The trail heads northwest out of the parking area. It mainly follows open parks, with a few short stretches of spruce-fir-dead spruce forest. 3.5 miles from the trailhead, a short spur goes 1/4 mile south to Pagoda Lake. Pagoda Peak (11,120'), named for its unusual pagoda shape, rises to the north. The elevation drops gradually from the trailhead to the Snell Creek Trail junction, one mile beyond Pagoda Lake. The Pagoda Trail continues west around the shoulder of Sand Peak to its terminus at FR#230 (Deadhorse Loop).
