Dewey Lakes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A trail with day hike and overnight options by lakes, within
walking distance of downtown Skagway. There are two Dewey Lakes, and they are very different places. Lower Dewey Lake lies in the trees 500 feet above downtown Skagway, and the hike is easy if a bit steep.
Upper Dewey Lake, in a subalpine basin at 3,097 feet in elevation, is a long, very steep haul up the mountain slope above the lower lake. Devil’s Punch Bowl is an icy lake in an alpine cirque a little less than a mile above and south of Upper Dewey Lake."
