Gorgeous Alpine Views all Around

An amazing spot to drive to and spend the day or backpack in and spend a night or two.  Be warned you will need a 4wd vehicle if trying to go up the road after a rain storm.  At the trailhead you have great acces to the lake and fishing.  There is also a large bathroom.  Some days the parking lot can fill and you'll have to park on the road or a pullout.  To the south you have a fantastic view of the Timpanogos Massif looming over the lake.  To the west you'll see Box Elder Peak and to the north is Dry Canyon and the Alpine Ridge.  Remember that you do have to hike in at least a 0.5 mile from the trailhead

Wonderful Spot!

This area is easy to drive to. You do have to drive through a small river and must camp half a mile from the lake. The scenery is beautiful and we even saw a herd of deer run by our camp. Fishing is right up the road too.
