Enchantment Lakes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The “Chants” is a magical and legendary place of shiny granite, sparkling waters, perpetual snow?elds, proli?c herds of mountain goats, and—in autumn—golden larches. Hike to this chain of mystically named lakes tucked in a tiered hanging valley within the craggy, cloud-snagging, glacier-clinging Stuart Range.
However, the trail is long, dusty, hot, rocky, and steep—but not an impediment for legions of backpackers who embrace this Shangri-La. While many hikers grumble about the complexities of the Enchantments permit system, it has been fairly successful in maintaining ecosystem integrity and providing a wilderness experience in this extremely popular and fragile area."
