A leisurely day trip with a terriffic view of the upper Phantom Creek drainage and Froze-to-Death Plateau. This trail is perfectly suited for that leisurely, quiet day in the wilderness amid some great scenery. Trail 17 climbs, with gradual switchbacks, along Armstrong Creek (yes, it probably should be called the Armstrong Creek Trailhead) for about 2.5 miles before it breaks out of the forest into a great panorama highlighted by Hole-in- the- Wall Mountain to the south. Look ahead to see how the trail climbs up to Froze- to- Death Plateau. The trail reaches Slough Lake (no relation to the Slough Creek that drains south from Boulder River country to the west) about a half mile after the forest opens up. This is a gorgeous, glacier- carved cirque, and Slough Lake sits in the midst of it like a little pearl. Actually, there are two small lakes, and the second lake has a campsite, for those inclined to stay overnight.
