Description

Continuing north from the Pole Creek Trail, the Seneca Lake Trail feels like the true start towards the Wind River Range, especially if you've just stopped at Photographer's Point. As it meanders over and around rocky outcroppings, the surrounding land formations begin to change more frequently with fewer drawn out sections of trail.

The first views of Seneca Lake (seen when passing Hobbs Lake) make the whole trek worthwhile and are sure to re-energize any weary runner on their final push to the junction with the Indian Basin Trail. Look to stop at Seneca Lake for solid fly fishing and a good place to set up camp if needed. Be aware that many fellow runners will also use Seneca Lake as a good spot to camp so act accordingly.
