Ira Spring & Putrid Pete's Peak Trails

Trip

Day Hike - Mason Lake

The Ira Spring Trail to Mason Lake leads through forest, then open slopes, perhaps with beargrass in bloom, certainly with wide open views. The next ecosystem is dominated by shady old conifers, followed by a running stream and lakeside vegetation.
