Bead Lake Trail No. 127 switchbacks down toward the lake from the upper trailhead. At 0.2 mile and the junction with the trail from the boat-launch trailhead, continue ahead, with the lake on your left. At 0.7 mile, pass the spur down to the Mineral Bay boat-in campsite. At 1.2 miles, the trail passes through a cedar grove and the hike-in Enchantment Camp at the end of the anchor-shaped lake’s southeast arm.
