Description

Added by Derrick Cochran

A nice hike that isn't difficult yet still pretty long. Super pretty with the aspen tree lined trail

Largely runnable trail up through pines and aspens with a few steep climbs. Incredible wildflowers. You can stop at Desolation Lake then continue up towards the ridge and up to Desolation Peak. You have to listen and watch for descending bikers coming fast around corners.
