Fish lake is a relatively large, narrow lake bordered along its entire south shore by a steep rock slide. The lake sits atop the divide between the Burnt Fork and Sheep Creek drainage.

Such a beautiful hike but once you get past the big alpine meadow the trail just seems to disappear. There are tree markers and cairns for most of it and then all of a sudden there isn’t. We also lost the trail not far from the trailhead coming down and ended up at the Spirit Lake Lodge. I do highly recommend this hike though just bring a GPS and a lot of bug spray!

Shorter trail to Fish Lake than the Fish Lake Trail from Beaver Meadow Reservoir
