Description

A breathtaking alpine lake in Utah's Big Cottonwood Canyon at the end of Lake Blanche Trail, well worth the hike. This lake is simply stunning AND it's surrounded by immense tower-like mountains...

Half-Day Run: Follow the Lake Blanche Trail until its terminus; approximately 3.5 miles.
