Nice trail to a beautiful little lake. I'd love to see this canyon in spring with the winter thaw. We will be back for sure.

for the little mileage, this hike offers a lot! amazing views, water fall, and a lake at the end.

This is a short but beautiful hike. From the fork in the road at the end of Lamoille Canyon, it's 2.8 miles up to the lake. Enjoy the scenery of the canyon as you climb.

Island Lake is a nice hike and makes a convenient access point to Eleven Thousand foot Thomas Peak. From the lake, hike north to the ridge and then a short scramble east to the summit. The views are spectacular in all directions. The accompanying photo is looking NW to Mt. Fitzgerald, another 11,000 foot mountain along the Ruby Mountain spine.

Easy t moderate hike. Lots of switch backs that unfortunately have erosion damage due to people straight lining the trail.
