The Oxford English Dictionary tells us there are at least a quarter of a million distinct English words, excluding words from technical and regional vocabularies. With that amazing richness, why are so many rocky bodies of water named Boulder River or Boulder Lake? No matter. All is not in a name, as you will discover from this lightly used trail. The rich understory, experienced only in old-growth forests—something you will see in abundance here—is delightfully refreshing. The nine designated campsites (closed from October 15 to June 15) at Boulder Lake have dynamite views of the lake basin and surrounding cirque.
