From Kamas, take the Mirror lake Highway (Highway 150) about 33 miles. The trailhead is on the west side of the road at Butterfly Lake

I loved this hike! I went on June 4th and there's still a lot of snow, but it was pretty warm up there and the snowmelt streams were pretty epic. We didn't see anybody else up at the lake. The lake was still frozen but so, so beautiful. Worth hiking through several feet of melting snow. I'm definitely going back in the summer to camp a few nights.

Cool little lake, kind of hard to find if you don't know where to look. I caught a fish on the first cast and we didn't see anyone else up there the entire time we were there.
