Short trail to a small alpine lake accessed from the West Fork Foss river trail.
At top, I took a left to Copper Lake instead and it was beautiful. Have no doubt Malachite would be equally beautiful. Mileage incorrect. Probably 8 miles roundtrip from trailhead. Beautiful with steep, rocky hike from Trout Lake.
