“A hike through pleasant forests and meadows to a perfect lake tucked beneath epic mountains.”— Jake Bramante
All along the way, the tall rocky walls of the surrounding mountains create a wonderful and breathtaking cathedral. Halfway from the junction with the Triple Divide Trail and the lake, a huge meadow breaks out. It can be marshy in a few areas, but the wildflowers are stunning with the rugged backdrop. A few more avalanche chutes, and you reach the outlet of the lake.
The lake is crystal clear and jumping with fish. It is fed by numerous waterfalls off of Razoredge Mountain with the sound echoing throughout the valley. Follow the trail along the north shore all the way to the head of the lake and enjoy lunch next to one of these feeder streams tumbling from snowfields thousands of feet above your head.
