A 7.4-mile backpack from the Staircase Ranger Station to Flapjack Lakes. This popular route climbs to a series of alpine lakes that sprinkle the high shelves around Mount Gladys. The Flapjack Lakes camping area has received such heavy use that rehabilitation efforts have been undertaken to revegetate the trampled spots, and the limited permits required for camping here are issued at the Staircase Ranger Station. Gladys Divide makes a fine side trip from the Flapjack Lakes, and the Black and White Lakes Trail offers a more wild and remote destination.

No recent report. Expect winter conditions with deep snow and avalanche danger. Route navigation very difficult. Winter navigation, equipment, and survival skills highly recommended. Closed to stock.
