Chicken Spring Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Aside from a 0.75-mile switchbacking climb to an 11,000-foot pass, the grade of the trail is gentle, offering recreationists a relatively easy 4-plus-mile trip to scenic Chicken Spring Lake. Views along the way from Cottonwood Pass of the Great Western Divide to the west and the Panamint and Inyo Mountains to the east are quite scenic. Although the trail is straightforward and the distance is short, the lake sees far fewer visitors than expected, helping to make this a fine destination for hikers, backpackers, anglers, and swimmers."
