“A scenic trail through flower-filled meadows and many lakes to the highest peak in the Snowy Range.”— Sarah Baker
Take a right at the trail junction for Dipper Lake, and make the final climb up to Medicine Bow Peak. From the peak, take in the panoramic views of Snowy Range Peaks and the numerous lakes in the basin below.
From the peak, descend steep switchbacks to the trail intersection the Lakes Trail #296. Turn left and follow the trail down to Lewis Lake and to the Lewis Lake parking lot, where this trail comes to an end.
