It’s about 4 miles through the forest to a fork just short of Brown Duck Lake. Go left to the lake, where your options for camping and exploring abound. You can circle 0.5 mile around to the west side of the lake where fewer people camp, or follow the trail to one of the many higher lakes—0.5 mile to Island Lake or 1.5 miles to the larger Kidney Lake. A good destination for a day hike from a base camp at one of the lakes is Tworoose Pass, about 4 miles from Brown Duck Lake. You can follow the high, rocky ridgeline to the south to a peak marked 11,567 feet on the Kidney Lake USGS map at 2.25 miles from the pass, and Duck Peak at 2.75 miles.
