We basecamped at Lady Lake and spent one of four days at Lower Aero lake. Was on my bucket list and I was not disappointed although did not catch any fish at this giant moon-base lake. The last mile is more of a rock hopping climb and is very steep. Mountain goats spied on us from fairly close. Memorable and lovely.

I have both hiked and horseback ridden this trail. Rock Island has great fishing and is also a great spot to see pikas! Along Kersey meadow a new bridge was put in two years ago making crossing even better now. Really beautiful views of Kersey lake, Rock Island lake, and the river at the trail head on this hike. Perfect day trip for fishing if you get an early start. Skyline Guest Ranch does a straight ride there and back and a fishing trip up to Rock Island.

Good fishing and views

Trail was easy until the last mile where most of the elevation is gained. great place for skiers, fisherman, and climbers/peak baggers
