A short but steep trail to an alpine lake & alpine views

Anne Travels

Features Lake · Views · Wildflowers

Family Friendly A short length and a lake at the end make this a good family hike.

No more than 15 people in a group. No campfires above treeline or camping within 100 feet of the lake.

Good climb to a peaceful alpine lake. I started at the pass so this kicked off a great set of these lakes.

Started thundering so we decided to turn back before reaching the top.
