The Alpine Lakes Wilderness has many supremely beautiful areas and a diversity of charms. This attractive loop trip gives you a nice sampling of what this part of the wilderness has to offer, with a minimum of regulatory hassles, especially in contrast to the nearby Enchantment Lakes country. You don’t need reservations or special permits to hike here, and despite the fine scenery the crowds are small enough that the Forest Service has managed to keep the regulations to a minimum. This hike takes you to spectacular high lakes, through larch-studded alpine meadows, along viewpacked ridges, through deep canyons, and past high waterfalls. Along the way you’ll travel on some trails that are fairly crowded and others that are so rarely traveled they are easily lost amid the greenery of meadows.
