Laughingwater Creek to Three Lakes Trail

Laughingwater Creek to Three Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Water tumbling over rocks creates a cheerful sound. Almost like a chuckle. Or a laugh. As though the water is laughing. Ah-haaaa! Tumbling water draining from a trio of lakes. It seems the namer of the features of this route started with a good creative streak and then got lazy.

Laughingwater Creek is a beautiful stream tumbling through a moss-laden forest, and Three Lakes is a wonderful trio of tarns in a high alpine basin; they deserve a livelier name. This trail is a marvelous route to explore early—it’s usually snow free by late June or early July. Visit while the waters are still running strong to hear the biggest chuckles."
