“A short but steep trail leading up to a beautiful lake with great fishing and amazing views.

Trail is well maintained but steep.
The trailhead for this route is right off Silver-Skagit Road, so be sure to slow down so that you don't pass the easy to miss parking area. The route consists of a steep trail with many switchbacks that roughly follows beside Eaton Creek. The trail will cross the creek a few times over sturdy bridges. There are great opportunities for fishing and camping at the lake, as well as for heading up for scrambles on the surrounding mountains (Mount Grant, Eaton Peak, etc.)
