Description

From the junction of Emerald Lake Trail and Dream Lake Trail, just before Dream Lake, Lake Haiyaha Trail heads south over the ridge. The trail then switchbacks its way through dense forest before quickly topping out and descending towards Chaos Creek. Cross the creek and start running up the southern bank past a junction with Lake Hayiaha Cutoff. Soon afterwards, the trail will descend to Lake Hayiaha.

Enjoy the beauty of the lake before retracing your steps on the Lake Hayiaha Trail or following the Lake Hayiaha Cutoff to East Glacier Knob Junction.
