“A beautiful trail that connects to the Desolation Trail and is a good route to Desolation Lake or Dog Lake.”— Brett Loertscher
The journey to Desolation Lake is not as popular as some others in the area, but I find it peaceful and beautiful. The lake itself isn't very large or incredibly picturesque, but it is quiet and is a good place to relax before heading back down.
Keep an eye out for moose and the occasional deer all along the trail; I have run into three moose here when rounding a corner, so be aware of your surroundings!
