"The entire route passes through a landscape of granite domes, wildflowers and a matchstick forest of charred lodgepole pine and spruce snags left over from the 38,507-acre Fayette Fire of 1988. The steadily ascending trail passes five lakes en route to the Highline Trail, but campsites in the burned forest are scarce. Good fishing in the lakes along this trail is the primary attraction. This trail is most useful as the return leg of a loop trip that begins on the Boulder Canyon Trail and uses either the Highline or Fremont Trail to reach North Fork Lake." Read more
