- This is a moderate climb with fair fishing at the lake. There is limited camping (Camp stoves ONLY) at the lake. Because of the fragile alpine tundra, it's recommended that camping be below the timberline. From the parking lot, the trail immediately forks, take the right fork following the stream down valley. Cross the wooden bridge on the left then stay right. The trail follows some switchbacks to another bridge crossing just before the lake. Directions: Drive approximately 9 miles east of Aspen on Highway 82, just past Weller Campground. Turn right into the small unpaved parking lot.
