Description

The main feature of this trail is Boulder Lake, which is a beautiful subalpine lake that is fed by rain and water runoff—there is no visible creek feeding the lake. It is stocked each year with rainbow trout and has super clear water. Even out in the middle of the lake you can see straight to the bottom.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of blueberry plants grow along the lake.
