Echo Lakes to Lake of the Woods and Ropi Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Lake of the Woods, with numerous coves, islands, and campsites, is a popular hiking destination accessible by maintained trail. The rest of Desolation Valley beyond Lake of the Woods is one of the most picturesque corners of Desolation Wilderness. Beneath the rugged east face of majestic Pyramid Peak, the granite, glacier-scoured basin holds a plethora of lakes and ponds, most of which are not accessible by developed and maintained trail. Hikers and backpackers with rudimentary cross-country skills have a fantastic playground for exploration of the nooks and crannies of this alpine-like basin."
