These five very popular alpine lakes (Anderson Lakes and Watson Lakes) are surrounded by acres of meadows, cliffs, and gorgeous scenery and offer families diverse opportunities to camp, fish, wade, and explore. The views of Mount Baker, Mount Watson, and Anderson Butte can tempt hikers to go on and on, although trails are rough, sometimes very steep, and filled with roots and rocks.

Trail was being worked on and looked for the most part complete. The trail is in great shape from the trail head all the way to the Watson lakes.
