A short well maintained side trail from the main Watson / Anderson Lakes trail. There were a few snow patches at the top, but not bad and it wasn't super steep. Views of Baker, Shuksan, Blum, Hagan, Bacon and other peaks. If you are just day-hiking I recommend squeezing in both Watson Lakes and this side trip since they are both fairly short. After crossing the Baker Lake dam the dirt road to the trail-head was in good condition.
