Description

At the turn around on the Window Trail you'll find a beautiful, narrow opening in the rock rim. This is the runoff spot for the basin where the lodge resides. Be careful at the opening, the rock is slick and a fall would be deadly.

Short Hike: You can park at the lodge or, to shave a few feet off your hike, you can find parking in the campground area.
