“A great route that takes you through a forest with great views to an easily assessable alpine lake!”— ChewiePDX
From the trailhead, head south through the forest, wandering around the river. The trail will go through a lush forest with rock outcroppings near by as well. After 2.6 miles, you'll reach a junction with Colchuck Lake Trail #1599A. Head on the eastward, right, trail to continue on to Stuart Lake.
This section of trail offers varied terrain through forest, meadows and over some rock. Approximately a mile into this section you'll get to an area that gives you great views of a waterfall and surrounding peaks.
After 2.2 miles from the junction you'll reach Stuart Lake. This is a pristine lake that offers plenty of swimming options as well as great view of the surrounding peaks.
