Bench Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The price of admission to the incredible scenery beyond Sawmill Lake is the extremely strenuous climb to that lake on Day 1. Once that price has been paid, however, the next few days traverse highly varied and endlessly beautiful terrain, with expansive views into vast cirques and majestic peaks."
