    We followed the described trail to Curly Lake, but also continued another 3.5 miles ending on Cataract Mt., an unnamed peak on the topo with an elevation just over 10,000'. First half mile, from the parking area, is quite steep. Beautiful short diversion to some falls along Curly Creek a little ways up. Horses have deepened the trail along the lower meadows, but the trail widens as the grade increases. Curly Lake is isolated, but not the prettiest lake around. If you have the time, it's worth another 3.5 miles to gain some elevation. You'll come to a trail junction at a prominent saddle. Continue up, towards Beall Lake. We saw some mountain gots up high. Come to another saddle and head cross-country to the right, up to the peak. Some spectacular views...and occasional cell phone reception!
