A short but steep 1.1 mile hike with a 900 feet vertical rise from the trailhead will bring you to this lake. And it’s not just the ascent that slows you down. You’ll pass by so many different vistas on your way up that you’ll keep wanting to stop and take pictures. It’s an easy trail to follow though. It’s is signposted, and you must make sure to head towards Crystal Lakes and not Mammoth Crest when the junction comes up. At the lake itself you may indulge in some fishing. Many people stop when they reach the outlet to the lake, but it is recommended that you hike your way over to the southern shore, which has a sandy beach and green grass.
