A spectacular hike to a glacial lake perched high on the side of Lamoille Canyon in the Ruby Mountains. The Island Lake Trail starts from the north end of the trailhead parking area, and climbs north up the west slopes of Lamoille Canyon. This open slope gives you a great view of the head of Lamoille Canyon to the south. After the trail crosses Island Creek, it ascends west in a few switchbacks, passing through isolated stands of trees, before ending at the edge of aptly named Island Lake. This small alpine lake is a classic cirque lake, or alpine tarn, left behind when the glacier that created the surrounding bowl-shaped canyon melted away.
