Set against a backdrop of plateau-topped Table Mountain’s rock and ice are a half-dozen alpine lakes, each with its own flavor. Enjoy them on an amazing loop through talus slopes, deep forest, berry meadows, and windswept ridges. Take in breathtaking views of the frosty bookend giants, Baker and Shuksan. The beauty of Chain Lakes is unsurpassed. So too are the crowds that flock to this Heather Meadows highlight during its short hiking season.
