"Lake Ann is an alpine gem that lies just south of the Continental Divide and west of three picturesque summits known as the Three Apostles. The lake is also on the Continental Divide Trail; consequently it is a popular camping area for summer backpackers. From Lake Ann the trail climbs another 800 feet to the top of the Divide and then drops down its south side towards Illinois Creek. For those that seek more solitude than the Lake Ann Trail can provide there are two other short spur trails along the way, one leading to the Three Apostles Basin east of Ann Lake and the other leading to Harrison Flats on the west side of the lake. Harrison Flats also contains two additional unnamed lakes."
