Great hike, beautiful views. Trail is over grown in some areas so you'll have to push the branches out or the way. Pretty easy going until the last mile to the lake and that is pretty steep.

Sweet trail, lots of delicious berries. Don't do the loop. It's poorly maintained. Great place to hammock or camp overnight.

on Chimney Rock

hiking

Pack river to Chimney Rock is a nice scenic trail, similar to other nearby trails like beehive lakes, fault lake, etc.

The trail head is easy to find with a parking area and signs from upper pack river road. The trail is reasonably maintained. It is quite scenic with good views of the valley and chimney rock. The trail crosses several streams and pack river twice. The pack river crossings are bridged.

The trail may be hard to follow at places. It goes over granite areas and through boulder fields. In these areas there are stacked rocks to help guide the way, but sometimes they are unreliable. The boulder field just before chimney rock requires a fair bit of scrambling and maybe a bit of parkour. There are several beautiful viewpoints of chimney rock without needing to cross this more difficult area.

There are only a couple camping spots on the trail, they may not be obvious to spot and the ones I saw are not adjacent to water. There is also a camping spot at the trail head which is adjacent pack river.

Hiking all the way to the rock can be technical in places, but the lower two thirds of the trail are pleasant.

I walked this trail for the first time today. What a great walk with amazing views. I had my Daschund Goober with me, he enjoyed the water. My Pedometer registered approx 3.15 miles.

hiking

Luis lake is beautiful, with lots of fish jumping! No bait. 2 fish, size limits etc.
from the entry, you hike a ways and meet up with a logging road. take a left when you emerge and follow the painted rocks. Uphill pretty much all the way there, downhill back. Wear decent shoes or be prepared to take you time to avoid slipping.

hiking

Hiked from 4th of July trailhead to Washington lake and made camp there. Then off to upper Chamberlain Lakes for a night. That was approximately 6 miles with the last 2 up hill and require decent conditioning on the hikers part. We then traveled back to 4th of July Lake for the last night. That was 7.2 miles or so and made for a tiring hike. After sleeping there it was a brisk 1.2 or so downhill back to the trailhead. We saw seven mountain goats at the upper chamberlain. Once during the first evening there and the they revisited the morning we left. Also saw a health doe while trekking back to 4th of July.

Backpacked to Goat Lake and was not disappointed. The last half mile or so is a tough climb up and you have to keep an eye out for the turn off, but the views of the lake are worth it.
