Headlee Pass and Vesper Lake Trail

Headlee Pass and Vesper Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Huff and puff up a grueling old miners trail. Brave crashing creek crossings and a steep open hillside choked in jungle greenery before making an Achilles-aching ascent to Headlee Pass, an inconspicuous gap between towering and rocky Morning Star and Sperry peaks.

From this portal to past riches, follow a scant path across jumbled talus to beautiful Vesper Lake, sparkling beneath the granite-graced slopes of Vesper Peak. Once the domain of hardscrabble prospectors, Vesper Lake now pays scenic dividends to tenacious trekkers."
