East Lake Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a fine beginner’s weekend hike. East Lake’s scenery includes three colorful peaks, Gabbro, Page, and Epidote, each of which are composed of rocks varying in hue from vermilion reds to ochre, and set in metavolcanic blacks for contrast. Nearby Nutter, Gilman, and Hoover lakes offer good fishing to supplement the angling in East Lake, and the wide-ranging scenery along the way rivals any found on longer backpack trips."
