The middle loop in the area over the Three Sisters and contouring along the lake.

Brian Fagundes

Features Lake · Views

Description

This trail begins with some climbs up the Three Sisters, which are really three hills. Each one gets progressively steeper as you go. The trail then descends quickly after the climb. Keep left at the trail intersections to stay on this loop. At the bottom of the descent, the trail follows gentle contours with Hensley Lake to the right. Follow the trail back to the start.

The Blue Loop can be accessed in the south from the Buck Ridge Purple Loop, and in the north, it intersects with the Buck Ridge Green Loop, giving you a variety of options for a longer or shorter hike.
