This is a perfectly manageable march into the southern Oregon woods, and what you get after only 2 miles of hiking is a group of truly beautiful wilderness lakes. The Sky Lakes Wilderness is peppered with these hidden water holes, and in the winter they become even more beguiling. After passing a few frozen-over ponds, puddles, and potholes, you’ll first reach the Heavenly Twin Lakes. Plan to make the Heavenly Twins your day’s destination (even if there’s little about them to suggest a twin existence). It’s clear that they are indeed heavenly, but then what lake in the woods is not?
