Beautiful scenery with plenty of wildflowers. Not much traffic, and you can hit the lake at the top or Alturas at the bottom when you are done.

Need To Know
Watch out for the logs and the mud.
From the trailhead, veer right, sign in at the wilderness boundary, then continue up as long as you please. You'll eventually come to Alpine Lake. At first, the terrain is pretty mild but it pitches steeply upwards to approach the lake.
Flora & Fauna
Lots of wildflowers from May until August.
