At the end of Wheeler Peak Scenic Drive is a parking area that takes you to many trails including the Bristlecone Pine and Glacier Trail, and the Alpine Lakes trail which takes you to Stella Lake and Teresa Lake. Stella is the bigger and more impressive of the two, as Teresa is more of a pond. Some great scenery along the way, including walking through a grove of aspens, through a dense plush mountain stream area and across open space which gives you a great view of Wheeler Peak and the glacier. Take a picnic lunch.
