“A short trail leads up to some alpine lakes for a short day trip or for camping and base camp for peak-bagging.

This steep trail will climb through the forest until you reach the alpine, where the terrain opens up and you can see the Train Glacier. There are three main lakes that make a scenic stopping point for you to find some flat ground to put your tent.
From here, it's possible to continue on to a number of off-trail routes and scrambles to surrounding peaks, with Locomotive Mountain being the shortest and most straightforward of the available routes.
