“A forested path leads to the shores of a beautiful green colored lake nestled below wooded mountains”— Jake Bramante
The trail travels up along Harrison Creek through a mixed forest of burned and unburned stands of trees. Views of the creek are occasional and views of the surrounding mountains are fairly restricted. Once at the lake, its mint green waters are a delight. Wooded mountains with jagged rock and snow blanketing the summits line the lake creating a dramatic backdrop.
The trail roughly follows the shoreline dipping in and out of the trees and avalanche chutes, giving you nice views of the lake until you reach the patrol cabin which has a nice shore along the lake. Looking up the valley from the head of the lake reveals the stunning rocky slopes and hanging ice that feed the lake, giving it its wonderful color.
