Where: Lake Blanche Trail
Length + Difficulty (Hike or backpacking trip): Hard, 6.8 miles
Best time: 3:20:15
Brief Summary: The beginning is somewhat steep, but there are so many fun things to see like creeks, meadows, and if you’re lucky in the spring, you’ll get a good view of the water run-off from snow coming down the mountains like a waterfall! Lots of scrambling towards the top over shale, but you’ll see quite a bit of red rock contrasted with large trees, the mountain top, and of course, Lake Blanche itself.
What to bring: Good hiking shoes! Don’t want to get blisters on this one.
