Description

Rainbow Lake is a spectacular mountain lake that is accessible for most hikers. The hike up is well marked with no scrambling. The snow-studded mountains that frame the lake make it a great place to rest and have lunch.

Half-Day Hike: The hike from the trailhead to the edge of the lake is 3.6 miles long.
