WalkingGreat!Snow

It was absolutely stunning views just after the first fresh snow. I took a nap in the sun up against a tree just at the edge of Lily Lake. A peaceful hike. What a great reminder of the vastness we live in and what’s truly important.

I have yet to make it a full loop with the scramble down to Angora Lake, but the Tamarack trail is one that people should be warned about- VERY technical, steep, ridiculously overgrown (the bushes are trying to pull you back down, or the trees cause you to bend in half while climbing a waterfall) This trail offers amazing views, however it needs maintenance to make it enjoyable. Also ran into a bear a mile in, this trail is quiet so make noise if traveling solo

First to Review

I do not recommend taking dogs in this trail. Steep rocks and climb. Did not finish due to fear of my dog getting injured.
