This loop combines spectacular scenery (Foster Lake) with spectacular solitude (Poison Canyon). It’s an up and down journey, with three deep canyons en route, but there’s ample compensation for your effort. If you only want to go to Foster Lake, just retrace your steps instead of completing the loop, or consider one of the other routes mentioned below. Highlights: A charming lake worth the steep ascent.
