Spectacle Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"A strenuous hike to spectacular Spectacle Lake. Spectacle Lake is a large alpine lake nestled in a rocky basin below Chikamin Peak, one of the 7,000-foot peaks that lord over this section of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. It is one of the most spectacular of the alpine lakes, a jewel among the high subalpine meadows of the Cascade Crest.

Cooper River valley from the northwest shore of Cooper Lake, through deep old-growth forest."
