Fourth of July Creek to Born Lakes

Fourth of July Creek to Born Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"Stunning views of the White Cloud peaks abound here, with numerous subalpine lakes to explore.

This is a busy hike, especially the fi rst 1.4 miles to beautiful Fourth of July Lake. The trail to Fourth of July Lake is open to all but ATVs and full-size vehicles. The trail from there to the Born Lakes is closed to motor vehicles. The first leg of the trail to Fourth of July Lake has modest scenery, but many use it because the trailhead gives high elevation and deep access into the White Cloud Mountains. The lake itself is very pretty, with meadows all around it."
