    Brent Osborn reviewed St. Regis Lakes

    11 months ago

    Beautiful fall colors and steep mountain cliffs. Far prettier than I expected.

    I have skied at Lookout Ski Area, but never knew this place existed. I am so glad we discovered it.

    We drove to the trailhead 267 because of time, and found one other truck there. You need 4WD and decent ground clearance to drive to this trailhead. Take the first gravel road as you start into the loop in the road and go past the ski lift. One other couple was there in their Subaru and wisely opted to hike in. My Nissan Armada had all the clearance we needed.

    We went mid September and the streams were low enough to rock-hop over so we had no wet feet issues like others have posted. There were also no mosquitos at this time of year.

    As others have mentioned, the trail is steep at times from this trail head to the lake. My app showed 826 feet of elevation gain over 1.5miles to the lower lake.

    Lots of elk and deer scat but the only wildlife we saw was a wild turkey??

    Keep to the right trail when you arrive at the lower lake to get to the upper lake a short distance away. I will go back with my kids on future hiking trips.
