Trail shared by Brian Fagundes

A wilderness trail to a secluded subalpine lake surrounded by granite peaks.

Features Lake · River/Creek · Swimming · Wildflowers

Description

From the trail junction with the Isberg Trail, head south through pine and fir forest. The trail climbs steadily through granite rock outcroppings and stringer meadows. Look carefully for the trail junction up to the lake as the wooden trail sign is laying among the rocks. Turn right, and head west uphill. The trail is well defined at times but can be hard to follow in some places. The trail contours up the drainage to Joe Crane Lake.

This trail junction is extremely easy to miss on your way up to Joe Crane Lake from the Isberg Trail. Take your time in the rocky section of trail and look for this sign and a trail heading uphill to the lake.
