This is another beautiful mountain lake off of I-90. The wild flowers were spectacular last year at this time. The trail gains about 500' the first couple of miles, then turns steep until just before the lake, gaining another 1600'. The hike is off exit 47 on I-90. Please be sure that recent hiking experience shows a hike of moderate/strenuous difficultly and moderate pace are within your capability.
