“Enjoy a variety of pines, aspen, ferns and flowers.”— Becky Albrecht
Opal Lake at the top is very beautiful. It appears murky, which is how it gets its name. If fire restrictions are not in place there is a fire ring next to the lake. Follow the stream that feeds into the lake here and you’ll come to the spring that feeds the lake and Fish Trail Creek.
