For the effort involved, this hike boasts nothing special. The viewpoints are mediocre (except at the top, where they’re decent). It possibly gives access to better terrain, but as a hike in and of itself, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Beautiful. Worth the extra miles from flapjack.

Stayed up here because Flapjack was full. Definitely worth the trek up..incredible views and very peaceful camping. We heard a mama bear had been wandering around the far side of the lake...but we never saw her. Try later in the season once the blueberries are ripe.
One note however, definitely not a single fish in this lake. We saw risers coming up as we approached, but it turned out to be what must have been hundreds of salamanders...bright red and yellow salamanders coming up for air.

Ended up doing this as an add on morning hike to the flapjack lakes trail (trail junction at Donahue Creek). Totally worth checking out along with Gladys Divide.

I visiting this area in August when the lowbush blueberries are ripe. Great time for bear watching.
