Hike to a string of lakes with many small rainbow trout and access many other lake basins. This is a well-used and absolutely beautiful trail. This hike will confirm everything you may have heard about the beauty of the White Clouds and Castle Peak. It has just about every lure for the outdoors person: deep, cool forests, mountain springs, lakes to fish or swim, mountains to climb, and a conservation battle to get you out of your armchair. (See the Boulder and White Cloud Mountains overview.)
