This is one of my favorite hikes and let's soak in some fall colors.The lake is located in a narrow valley with Chair Peak to the east and Kaleetan Peak to the west. It is known for its clear water and beautiful blue-green color. The trail to the lake follows a magical valley of waterfalls, rapids and lush forest.

Meet at 7.00 am at Eastgate park and ride underneath the overpass.
