Very good hike up to Summit Lake. First eight miles to Beaver Park campground is pretty much flat and easy hiking. Great scenery of Flat Top Mountain and of the Green River Lakes. Beaver Park Campground is small but nice. Hike from Beaver Park to Summit Lake is all up hill and strenous. Take your time and pace yourself. Make frequent stops and enjoy the scenery, it''s beautiful. Do not take the Vista Pass cutoff when you get to it. It will take you to Cube Rock Pass and to Peak Lake. This is a very tough hike. Use caution when pumping water from the Green River Lakes. The silt will plug up your filter. Use two coffee filters wrapped around your filter inlet, it will help and bring an extra filter. Have a great hike, I did.
