“A steep trail leading to a gorgeous alpine lake with amazing wildflowers in season.”— Tomsen Reed
Eventually, the trail meets up with the junction with the Maybird Lakes Trail, and then continues south up Red Pine Canyon instead of crossing the creek. Soon after the trail split, a fork of Red Pine Creek actually crosses the trail and can make it pretty muddy and slippery certain times of the year, but it is generally very shallow.
After the creek crosses the trail, the trail steepens and gets even more rocky, which can be a challenge for going down but is still pretty fun. Eventually, the steepest part of the trail abates and the slope gets gentler as the trail winds through some meadows right before reaching the lake. The actual Red Pine Lake Trail ends at the northern end of the lake, although there is a trail that goes all the way around the lake, as well as another trail that goes up to upper Red Pine Lake.
