Within the first 1/4 mile you will pass some cabins to the left, cross two bridges and go through
a small meadow. The trail becomes steep in places with switchbacks and follows an old logging road for a short
distance. Be sure to look for rock cairns marking the trail. The trail passes through beautiful meadows filled with wildflowers and spectacular views of the Elk Range and Frying Pan Wilderness. Look out for old mining sites including mine shafts and an old cabin, before the trail opens up at tree line. Follow the cairns as the trail skirts around a hill and then begins to descend 2 1/2 miles to Lake Charles, through meadow, forest and rocky areas. Spectacular views of Castle Peak, the Flat Tops, and the Elk Range are seen along the way. Lake Charles, a 16.2 acre lake at 11,055 feet is surrounded by the mountains of the Sawatch Range, home to Colorado cutthroat and brook trout.
