Great first time hike for an amateur backpacker
Seville Lake is a beauty, and arriving there is to find it partially surrounded by huge, alpine formations with lines of trees growing in the glacial striations, the eye moving up, then back down to lotsa fish jumping. Might have to learn to fish! We started at Marvin's Pass, and hiked down down down through conifer forests to Comanche Meadow where we spent the first night. We heard a tree fall with a boom, and owls. Saw two bears foraging for bugs in a downed tree. Before going to Seville Lake we day-hiked a few miles down Sugarloaf Trail to see what that was like, then went back to camp for our gear. Followed Belle Canyon down to Seville Lake, which was a beautiful, lush forest trail along side a creek, filled with wildflowers - and - lots of mosquitoes. The trail we expected from the 2006 NatGeo map was not there which would have made the 3d leg of the triangular loop back to Marvin's Pass, so we backtracked to the Pond Meadow junction, and climbed back up until it flattened out again near Rowell Meadow. A lovely two night, three day hike at an easy pace. We'd go back to this lake again.
