Spectacle Lake Professional Review and Guide

"A strenuous hike to spectacular Spectacle Lake. Spectacle Lake is a large alpine lake nestled in a rocky basin below Chikamin Peak, one of the 7,000-foot peaks that lord over this section of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. It is one of the most spectacular of the alpine lakes, a jewel among the high subalpine meadows of the Cascade Crest.

It is one of the most spectacular of the alpine lakes, a jewel among the high subalpine meadows of the Cascade Crest. The hike begins up Cooper River Trail 1323, flat and easy, hiking directly up
Cooper River valley from the northwest shore of Cooper Lake, through deep old-growth forest."
