It’s a namby-pamby sort of name, but the scenery from this lake is nothing short of stunning, and this seldom-traveled route is a great alternative to the Crescent Lake area. Amazing craggy peaks surround you as you stand near or on Fawn Lake. The snowboarders or skiers in the group will drool over the beautiful slopes on Lakeview Mountain or Redtop Mountain. Both are wonderful, overlooked smaller peaks in this countryside dominated by Diamond Peak. Try this trail if you’re looking for an alternative to the busier trails of the Willamette Pass area and have good weather for taking pictures.
