The usual wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply in the Mountain Lakes Wilderness. No permits are required, but please register at the trailhead. The Mountain Lakes Loop is usually closed by snow—unless you ski or snowshoe—from December to May.

Description

The Mountain Lakes Loop Trail #3727 makes an 8-mile loop through the lake-strewn center of the Mountain Lakes Wilderness. Starting from the Varney Creek Trail #3718, the trail traverses rolling terrain to reach Lake Como, Lake Harriette, Echo Lake, Eb Lake, Zeb Lake, and numerous other unnamed lakes. Along the way, enjoy pleasant coniferous forests and clear, high-mountain air as you pass junctions with the Mountain Lakes Trail #3721 and Clover Creek Trail #3722.
