about Lake Solitude Loop:
Restrooms and a drinking fountain are provided in the visitor's center, and there are restrooms outside the building as well. Several picnic tables are situated just west of the visitor's center. If the visitor's center is open, be sure to stop in and check it out.
Trails in this area are great for viewing wildlife and wildflowers. Deer and moose sightings are common here. The Salt Lake Ranger District would like to remind the public that although moose can appear calm and tame, they can be extremely dangerous and unpredictable, so please avoid them. Also, please enjoy, but do not pick the wildflowers. Picking them prevents blooming the following year.
When heading into the wilderness, it's always smart to bring a daypack stocked with bug spray, sunscreen, water, tissue, and snacks. It's also fun to bring along a field guide or two and some binoculars so wildlife viewing opportunities aren't missed. The canyons are great places to see birds, moose, butterflies, wildflowers, deer, and much more. Always make sure wildlife viewing is done from a safe distance; use the binoculars to get a closer look.
No horses, dogs, bikes, or motorized vehicles are allowed on the trail.
