Description

This describes the trail clockwise. From the intersection with the Long Canyon Trail, traverse the bowl above Deer Lake and then climb to the bottom of the south ridge of Siligo Peak.

There is an optional use trail that climbs the South Ridge of Siligo Peak to its summit, where you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the surrounding lakes and mountains.

Back on the Four Lakes Trail, take the switchbacks down to Diamond Lake. Sitting amid meadows at the top of the steep Stuart Fork Canyon, Diamond Lake offers excellent views of the White Trinities. From there, the trail climbs to the north side of Siligo Peak, and then descends into the Deer Creek Canyon. Pass by lovely Luella Lake and enjoy the views of Seven Up Peak and Dolomite Ridge ahead.

Keep descending to the meadowy junction with the Deer Creek Trail.
