Palmer Lake Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This backcountry trail is one of the least frequently used trails on the high, lake-dotted bench west of Pine Creek Canyon. Local outfitters developed part of this trail and are the most frequent users of trails in this area; you may encounter some of their camps and packstrings
along this route.
Although the route is far from the high country, it is a pleasant trip through subalpine forests and meadows, and it offers access to five fish-filled lakes en route. Running water along the route may be scarce in late summer, but nearby lakes offer a reliable supply for
drinking (after treatment). This route is hard to follow in places; it is best followed by experienced backpackers."
