Is it Potato Lake or Spud Lake? Nobody knows. But it made for an easy follow-up afternoon hike. The road to the TH is a bit rough, but the hike is a perfect family outing and for a holiday weekend we saw a few of them along the way. There are 4-5 campsites around the lake and one of them was occupied. Otherwise this was just a pleasant hike through the forest with not much elevation gain. The views from Liam's Lookout down the 550 corridor along the Hermosa Cliffs to Purgatory and beyond were great. But the highlight is the lake and the looming West Needles that rise above it.
