Lake Angeline, Trail 088 Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is an impressive hike to one of the larger backcountry lakes nestled over 10,500 feet high in the alpine tundra. Lake Angeline makes for a great destination if you only have a night but want to feel like you’re really getting away. Spanning 2,500 feet in elevation, this hike is a lesson in habitat zones.

It is wise to park in the southern end of Weber Park at the intersection of FR 391 and FR 398. No need to tear up the road or your vehicle on the rocky ruts that claim to be the final stretch of FR 391. As you head west, you’ll notice the theme for this hike is walking uphill through the Lost Fire Burn of 1988. Lodgepole pines now stand as healthy reminders that fire is an essential process in this."

Angeline is a difficult hike if you are not use to high elevation and if you do not know the trail. I would recommend going with someone that has been on this hike before for first timers. I went with a one other friend and we were able to make it up to the lake in 2 hours and 45 minutes with one short break, however, we are both use to living at higher elevations. I would recommend it to someone that is experienced or up for a challenge. Over all great hike, great views, beautiful lake.
