This hike offers beautiful views of Cutthroat Peak, Early Winters Spires, and Liberty Bell Mountain. The lake is a deep turquoise blue with a backdrop of towering rock walls. This is a classic fall color hike in late September - early October when the hills are painted red and gold.

After leaving the parking lot the trail parallels the road for a short distance then begins to climb up hill in big timber. The trail branches at about 1.5 miles, the left trail leads to climbing routes up Liberty Bell Mountain. Hikers should stay on the main trail. The trail varies from heavy timber to scattered larch near the lake.
