There are over two dozen alpine lakes scattered about in the high cirques and valleys of the Nelson Range. Some are quite difficult to get to, others have had logging roads punched right to their shores. On the west slope of Three Sisters Peak lie three aquatic gems: Waldie, Curtis, and Panther. Panther is the easiest to get to and a good choice for an afternoon hike with your best friend. Although the actual trail to Panther is only 1.25 miles (2 km), most hikers who care about their vehicles will want to start their hike an additional 1.25 miles from the trailhead, beginning from where the road splits (the suggested parking spot). The road walk doubles the distance to 2.5 miles, still short enough for a quick escape.
