Ready yourself for varied terrain as you climb away from your trailhead, situated between Angora and Cathedral peaks. Pass historic Glen Alpine Springs Resort while ascending its namesake creek to the west. We will linger at lightly treed Susie Lake, where Jacks and Dicks peaks loom in the background. Then it's off to a climb to the outlet stream of rockbound Heather Lake’s azure waters, brightened by the polished snow-clad Crystal Range. Briefly ascend to Lake Aloha, where your viewfinder will be full of Pyramid, Agassiz, and Price looming overhead. Mosey along Aloha’s shore over granite and then take an uphill path away from Lake of the Woods, heading toward Haypress Meadow.
