Description

With views of the mountains, this trail goes up to Blue Lake from Minam Lake. This small lake has few campsites, but it is well worth the visit and an overnight stay. The journey to Blue Lake is short and pleasant, and if you're already in the neighborhood, you'd be missing out not to take this extension.

Flora & Fauna

Elk, deer, Clarks nutcrackers, grouse.
