A highly trafficked out and back trail to the Crater Lakes and the alpine lake above them. The two lakes are extremely picturesque with easily traversable flat terrain around them. The first 2 miles of this trail climbs very gradually and only contains about 1/2 mile of steady steeper climbing at the end to reach the two lakes. The optional climb to the alpine lake is quite steep but very short and offers a fantastic view of the two Crater Lakes and valley below.
