Tamarack Lake Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nestled beneath the steep walls of Monument Ridge and Crater Crest is a rocky basin carpeted with high alpine meadows and highlighted with hardy trees. In that basin lies Tamarack Lake, a true subalpine masterpiece. This is a peaceful place, receiving only a fraction of the number of hikers that throng Barney Lake. The trail, however, is steep and can be rather discouraging under the midday sun. Start your hike early and carry plenty of water."
