A 1.8 mile day hike from the Obstruction Point Road to PJ Lake. This trail descends from the top of Hurricane Ridge across an extremely steep grade to reach a subalpine lake. It begins by diving into a tributary valley of Morse Creek. The path crosses open avalanche slopes as it drops, and a lush growth of wildflowers is highlighted by paintbrush and tiger lily. PJ Lake is at the end of the trail, a green pool set among the subalpine firs at the base of 6,247 foot Eagle Point. There is a campsite on the lakeshore, and brook trout cruise the shallow waters.
