Abes Lake sits all alone, and you will likely be, too, if you take this short, steep hike from Holiday Park. This lake can be a little tricky to locate. You have to watch for a side trail that branches away to the left from the main canyon about 2.5 miles up the trail. If you miss the cut-off , you will keep going up the Middle Fork of the Weber River until the trail peters out. The last mile to Abes Lake is the steep section, and you should be heading southeast. Camping at Abes Lake is limited.
