This hike offers a long day trip to a lowland lake below the striking crags of Hozomeen Mountain. It is a popular day hike for visitors who find themselves in the Hozomeen area. Heavy concentrations of mosquitoes plague the area between mid-August and mid-October. The trail begins beside a historic customs cabin and ascends briskly through the timber above the Hozomeen Campground. The forest soon thins to become a sparse growth of spindly Douglas firs and lodgepole pines, the sure sign of an old burn. The thin and stony soil is covered with mosses and foliose lichens, which are related to the caribou moss of the Arctic tundra.
