This connecting trail climbs from Minam Lake, over Ivan Carper Pass, then descends, passing Upper Lake to Mirror Lake. The Minam/Mirror Lake Trail is sometimes called Ivan Carper Trail. (Trail 1661) The trail begins at the southeast corner of Minam Lake. It leaves West Fork Lostine River Trail (1670) at an elevation of 7,385 feet. The trail climbs steadily on meandering switchbacks and passes a couple of ponds. These ponds are below and to the right of the trail. The trail reaches Ivan Carper Pass (8,520 ft.) 1.5 miles after leaving Minam Lake. The view from the pass is quite spectacular.
