Salmon Summit Trail to Red Cap Lake Professional Review and Guide
"The Salmon Summit National Scenic Trail provides the wilderness traveler with solitude, relatively gentle hiking through cool forest, and occasional ridgetop views of the wild and remote western Trinity Alps. Red Cap Lake is a long way from any population center, but this route to the Salmon Summit trailhead avoids the tedious, serpentine drive to Forks of Salmon and the High Point trailhead described in the previous trip, which provides the other access to the lake. For the relative few who reside west of the Alps, this hike may be one of the closer trips for them."
