Boulder Point and Boulder Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Boulder Point is perched atop 7,293-foot cliffs in the Gold Creek area of the Upper Rattlesnake Wilderness. Boulder Point was the site of a fire lookout until 2003, when the Mineral/Primm Fire reduced it to a few charred remains. From this summit is a spectacular view of Boulder Lake, the Gold Creek drainage, and a view across the forested wilderness to the Mission Mountains.
Past the point, the trail continues steeply down the cliffs to Boulder Lake. This 1 09-acre alpine lake is the largest among more than 30 lakes in the Rattlesnake Wilderness. The lake sits in a forested cirque and is the source of Gold Creek, a tributary of the Blackfoot River."
