A strand of aquatic alpine gems strung together in a tight valley shadowed by lofty craggy summits and sheer rock faces, the Necklace Valley is indeed a backpacking jewel. The approach is long, steep at times, rocky, and taxing— all the better for crowd control. Compared to the nearby, much more easily accessible Foss Lakes, Necklace Valley’s lakes are much smaller and not nearly as dramatic, further reducing their demand but by no means diminishing their value.
