Lake Ethel to Larch Lake Professional Review and Guide

"A more scenic path to Larch Lake via Lake Ethel and the Scottish Lakes. The traditional path to Larch Lake is via Chiwaukum Creek, but a slightly longer alternative is available to those who prefer to get the climbing over with first, then meander through high lake country and across subalpine ridges, via Lake Ethel Trail and the Scottish Lakes.

The traditional path to Larch Lake is via Chiwaukum Creek, but a slightly longer alternative is available to those who prefer to get the climbing over with first, then meander through high lake country and across subalpine ridges, via Lake Ethel Trail
and the Scottish Lakes. Assuming you managed the drive to the trailhead, get your permit at the trailhead register and start hiking. (If the road proves too rough, park lower down and hike up the road to the trailhead.)"
