The entire trail is 2.9 miles long and ends at the junction with the North Fork Sheep Trail and the North Slope Highline Trail begins at this point.

Great hike to the lake. A little rocky and wet but not bad. Got a small blow up out on Tamarack well worth it!

I have hiked this trail to Tamarack and Jessen many times. It's quite easy just to those lakes. 2013 I hiked this trail to Burnt Forks Lake, it was pretty easy until the pass at the end of Tamarack Lake, it's tough. from there its pretty easy to Fish Lake. Climbing from Fish Lake to Burnt Fork is medium.
