Trail shared by Matthew Coye

A short excursion off of North Willow to a beautiful high alpine lake that few get to see!

Description

This is one of the flattest parts of the ascent from the Willowbrook neighborhood. Enjoy it as a cool down as you approach the lake.

Along the way, stare up at East Thorn and see if you have what it takes for the 3rd & 4th class scrambling. Please read the beta first as that route has some gut-wrenching exposure.
