Hike the moderate trail to Jug Lake to camp and fish, or if your route-finding skills are up to it, go on to Chain Lakes for an isolated campsite. Unless you are sure of your route-finding abilities, Jug Lake should be your stopping point. The trail from here to Chain Lakes can be very difficult to follow. If you decide to head for Chain Lakes, continue west-northwest on the Judkin Trail. Shortly you will cross a stream that empties into Jug Lake near the campsites along the northern shoreline. After crossing the stream the tread bears right to head northwest. Just after turning to the northwest, the trail crosses a small meadow, where it becomes very vague.
