The trail to Lamphier Lake is just 3 miles up a wide rocky trail. The lake is beautiful. We camped at a smaller lake nearby. From our campsite we hiked to Gunsight Pass for some fabulous mountain vistas. All along the trail was a vast array of flowers and interesting rocks and fossils.
Finding the trail to SquareTop Mt. was a little tricky. We bushwhacked through willows and small streams to the trail. The other route to the summit was along a knife edge ridge...scary looking. The trail is a strenuous climb but worth it. Lots of flowers ...and bugs.
