Cole Creek Lakes Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Surprising vistas, pleasant lakes, and scenic campsites are the rewards for this long and difficult trek up the Tanglefoot Trail to Cole Creek Lakes. Despite an off-highway vehicle (OHV) road that allows back-door access from the Silver Lake area, early season visitors who do not mind tramping through a bit of snow will find complete solitude. (No campfires are permitted above 8,000 feet.)"
