Well-maintained trail accessing the southwestern corner of the Sky Lakes Wilderness. Camping opportunities are fairly limited.

Easy well maintained trail to the lakes. Be prepared for the insane amount of mosquitos.

The Blue Canyon Trail in.Butte Falls, OR in the topo map is not visible, and when switched to the satellite map, is only a partial trail. If this is fixed I will change my rating.
