The Little Lakes Valley is a popular area for backpackers in the summer. More than sixty small lakes fill the glacial valley, and the trail passes countless meadows, abundant wildflowers, and numerous streams. The summits of Mount Mills, Mount Abbot, Mount Dade, and Bear Creek Spire are popular summertime destinations for peak baggers and mountaineers. The ease of access and the superb ski terrain make this area nearly as popular with skiers and ski mountaineer guides. The area provides something for everyone, from gentle terrain in the valley to advanced and expert terrain in the high glacial cirques.
