Sunny side out and view ridge trail back was really beautiful. Went in late afternoon so the sun setting made for some really beautiful fall colors.
You do have to watch your step as the horseback rides use this trail also. Lots of fertile dirt!
View ridge to Kraule on the way back was my favorite part of the hike

Hiked this today. Unfortunately we started late and had to turn back at 5240 ft. In order to descend before dark.
Thick snow and beautiful silence.

Trail to the lake is in good shape. After starting on the trail take the second right to Scatter Lake, the first right is Slate Creek. Good camping spots just off the lake shore. Lots of larch trees. If you decide to take on Abernathy Peak it is about .8 mile scramble and another 1300 ft elevation gain. There is a faint boot path to the to the left once you reach the saddle. The views of the surrounding peaks from the top are amazing.

This trail is amazing. Such great views and the final destination was a sight for sore eyes. Decent trail I would absolutely hike in again.

It is a remarkable trail, relatively free of horse traffic, and, in fact, horse traffic is restricted around the lake. There are nice camp spots. The trail up goes through the zones from Ponderosa pine to small tamarack, and the trail becomes quite steep in the last 1/2 mile. The climb up to Abernathy Peak from the lake is not difficult, and one achieves fine views of the Pasayten Wilderness and the North Cascades.
