Pinto Lake Lookout Professional Review and Guide
"For those choosing to hike into Pinto Lake via Sunset Pass, this half-day hike repeats the last few kilometers of the trail. For those coming up the Cline River, there is a tough little climb ahead of you. However, the steep pull up the Sunset Pass Trail offers wonderful panoramic views of the lake, the Cline River valley and the mountains of White Goat Wilderness Area. The trail switches numerous times before you haul yourself above the switchbacks. The trail continues its steep climb through forest and across avalanche slopes as it traverses the shoulder of the unnamed mountain on the right. As you break out of the trees great views open up of the surrounding mountains and Pinto Lake below."
