Climb into the subalpine terrain high above the Bumping River Canyon, then descend a short distance to the shore of Richmond Lake. The wide, gentle trail leaves the trailhead through a forest of mostly lodgepole pine and Douglas fir with a scattering of tamarack and western white pine mixed in. Lodgepole pine and western white pine can easily be told apart by looking at their needles. The needles on a lodgepole pine are in bundles of two, and on the western white pine the bundles contain five needles.
