Climb along Eightmile Creek and up through subalpine meadows to Lake Caroline and Windy Pass. The hike to Lake Caroline and Windy Pass is an Alpine Lakes Wilderness favorite, especially among those who enjoy hiking through high subalpine meadows and don’t mind sweating a little to get there. This hike packs a lot into 7 miles, reaching two lakes in the first 3 miles, climbing through fire-scarred forest slopes and flower-strewn meadows, meandering through high lakes, and climbing wide-open meadows and basins to a high pass and sublime views.
