Lake Haiyaha is a popular destination, surrounded by large boulders
and set in Chaos Canyon between Hallett and Otis Peaks. Total round trip distance is approximately 4 miles and is not considered strenuous although we will be at 10,500'. Total climb is 750'. There are also opportunities to go a short distance to several other lakes (dream lake & nymph lake) along the same trail.
The focus will be landscapes in winter to catch snow in the backdrop mountains and surrounding areas. I am planning on scouting this hike in the next 2 weeks. Date may change due to snow conditions. Car pooling will be required and will be looking for drivers who have a yearly park pass as there is an $20.00 entrance fee per car.
