The trail drops quickly off the north side and is usually wet with rivulets produced by melting snow lasting into late July. The trail is clear, but rocky as you drop 400 feet over the next mile to reach Ibantik Lake, a watery jewel nestled at the base of the steep cliffs of the east peak of Notch Mountain. Several good camping areas are west and south of the lake, with good streams to filter water. Of course the lake water also can be filtered. If you have a single vehicle, this is a good turnaround point.
