You’ll run the gamut of scenery here, from clear-cuts, to ancient forests, to huckleberry fields, to alpine lakes. The route climbs up and over a forested ridge, rolls past an assortment of lakes, and provides great opportunities to see birds of prey hunting overhead and small mammals browsing underfoot. The best wildlife viewing comes in the clear-cuts thanks to the abundance of huckleberries growing in those man-made meadows. The lake basin also offers wildlife viewing, as beasts and birds flock to the pools to drink and to graze on the lakeside vegetation. The lakes themselves are marvelous alpine wonders. Twin Lakes sparkle blue amid green and red heather, while Lake Lillian is a deep gem set in a granite cirque.
