Trail shared by aaron moore

A fun uphill trail leading to a beautiful lake

aaron moore

Features Lake · River/Creek · Wildlife

Description

This is a pretty consistently steep trail that leads to Sandbeach Lake in a mainly forested section of Wild Basin. The first portion of the trail climbs quickly to just below the ridgeline and follows the ridge until just before Campers Creek backcountry campsite.

You'll eventually cross Campers Creek, and follow close to Hunters Creek, and then head up towards Sandbeach Lake. The last push before the lake is somewhat steep but this last little push is worth it for the amazing views at the lake.

Take your time to appreciate the alpine lake, and maybe dip your toes in its icy water. Once you have had your fill of this spectacular area, head back the same way back to your car.
