“Follow the East Fork Big Goose Creek to arrive at Geneva Lake.”— Russell Hobart
Continue straight on the trail to pass the broken skeletons of a defunct mining operation.
When the mines peter out, you turn the corner to the left and have the option of taking Duncan Lake Trail that heads uphill to the left.
A half mile after the turnoff, you'll arrive at a stream crossing that you can rock hop through or decide to wade.
From here, the environment seems to become more alpine with the trees getting a bit smaller, the land getting sparser, and the trail becoming a bit rockier with short sections on steep incline. In the right season, huge mushrooms pop up along the trail.
When you arrive at the marshy tip of Geneva Lake, turn right and head along the edge of the lake. You'll be pinned closely to the lake as steep terrain becomes bald, rocky cliffs, but it's all manageable. When you arrive at the far end, enjoy the views before cutting left to the other side of the lake to reunite with the Solitude Loop Trail #038.
