Description

Follow the Buchanan Pass Trail to access this trail. This trail is easy to miss, it's a sharp right hand turn (to the west) in the midst of the woods. The trail leads to a beautiful alpine lake with some pine trees on the south shore. It's a beautiful setting for a campsite, as well as a great place to try some fishing.
