One of the best lakes on the whole loop. Easy hike especially once past Boulder Lake. Thousand foot granite cliffs tower above a few decent camp sites. Great swimming once the lake warms up by late July. Pesky fishing, but the lake does contain cutthroat, Brown, brook, and cutbow.

We made it about 3/4 of the way to the lake from our base camp at Boulder Lake. Still a lot of snow and the trail was hard to find at times. After fording Rapid Creek too much snow made the trail impossible to find. Absolutely beautiful and can't wait to go back after the snow melts a bit more.
