This trail leads to Ruby Jewel, a pristine high alpine lake.

Overview

Features: Lake — River/Creek — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Description

In addition to the jewel itself, you can also access Clark Peak from the Ruby Jewel Trail. Instead of following the trail to the lake take the trail on the right side of the valley which will allow you to gain the ridge to Clark Peak.

Most people park 1.5 miles below the trailhead at the car corral just past the yurt. The upper trailhead is 3 miles further up a rough 4WD road.
