Lamarck Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"Beautiful lakes and rugged mountain scenery lure hikers and backpackers up the Lamarck Lakes Trail. Although the distance is short, the elevation gain is fairly significant, requiring that visitors be in reasonable condition.

Maintained trail dead-ends at Upper Lamarck Lake, which may help to explain the relatively light use the trail receives, but off-trail options to the delightful Wonder Lakes and view-packed Lamarck Col offer fine diversions for those with extra time and energy."
