Pipsissewa Trail Professional Review and Guide
"From the campground loop, locate a sign indicating the trailhead is 500 feet away. Walk north on a quiet dirt road that leads to seasonal cabins. Soon after crossing the lake’s outlet stream, come to the trail as it veers left into the forest. Bypass a row of cabins and moderately ascend above Bonaparte Lake. Under a cool canopy of large ponderosa pines and western larches, the good trail continues to gain elevation along a couple of sweeping switchbacks. Cross several grassy openings, which in spring and summer display pretty floral arrangements. In fall, western larches and aspens add soothing touches of gold."
