“A short run with great views to a small alpine lake.”— Brad H
After heading uphill for a bit, you'll head left on Crooked Lakes Trail to arrive at Penner Lake. The trail is maintained from Island Lake to Penner Lake, of the most scenic of the Grouse Lakes, with good fishing and a number of good campsites.
There is a wide variety of alternate trails in the area to take to either extend or shorten this run as desired. Additionally, there are also lots of good areas for backcountry camping.
