Moon Lake Main Fork of Rock Creek Professional Review and Guide
"Moon Lake rests at the base of Spirit Mountain and Mount Rearguard in a giant rock bowl with cliffs angling directly into the water. Sitting in a 1 0,400-foot valley below the Hellroaring Plateau, the 79-acre high-alpine lake is surrounded by 1 2,000-foot peaks. It is a magnificent area to explore. The trail begins on the Glacier Lake Trail at the upper end of Rock Creek Canyon, then veers north up the Moon Creek drainage through a jumble of huge boulders. The route to Moon Lake is a backcountry hike and only recommended for seasoned hikers. The unmaintained path fades in and out, and some areas are steep and rocky."
