A peaceful, wooded hike that breaks out into an alpine lake basin with beautiful larch glades. The route follows a well-traveled trail through cool, shaded woods. The lake is a good launching point for longer trips in the basin above the lake and to Mission Peak. This is a very easily accessed destination for those coming from Wenatchee (20 minutes from town) and is often a welcomed escape from the summer heat down in the valley floor. Dogs are allowed here with no leash required.
