Pack a fishing pole and a camera. There are many meal-sized trout in this basin’s lakes, and there are endless views to enjoy both on the trail and at the trail’s end. The route pierces the old-growth forest in the valley as it enters the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and leads to glorious examples of the wilderness’s namesake lakes. Hester Lake sprawls below Mount Price, and short scrambles are possible to Little Hester Lake and the scenic ridges around the basin.
