The hike to Ptarmigan Lake winds through spruce-fir forest, gently climbing into an area of beautiful subalpine meadows dotted with tarns and little lakes. For flower aficionados, the meadows show off beautiful wildflowers in July. After a little climb up the side of a cirque, you arrive at crystal-clear Ptarmigan Lake. Another 0.3 mile leads to a saddle with a view down into South Cottonwood Creek. This hike travels above tree line, so if the weather is threatening a thunderstorm, stay at the lower lakes.
