Overview

Rainbow Lake is a spectacular mountain lake that is accessible for most runners. The run up is well marked with no scrambling. The snow-studded mountains that frame the lake make it a great place to rest and have lunch.

Half-Day Run: The run from the trailhead to the edge of the lake is 3.6 miles long.
