Lower Lena Lake

Lower Lena Lake is a moderate, 6 mile in-and-out day hike with 1,300 ft in elevation gain. The trail goes up through forests above Lena Creek to a secluded lake. This is a beautiful sub-alpine lake formed by a massive rock slide 5,000 years ago.

About 8 miles down the road you will see the Lena Lakes/The Brothers trail head on the right.
