The scenery is nice and the lake is attractive too. However, no time to walk around. If you've time, do go for a walk and share.

Holy crap. FInally found this lake coming in from the Hell's Backbone Road vs the Power Line Road which caused us to hike 3 miles in and out without finding it. Once found, beautiful spot. Did not make it all the way in by 4WD. Float tube would be beneficial.

If you like mountain hiking in the aspen and sagebrush, if you love Boulder Mountain this is for you! It is remote and the solitude is amazing. There is technically a road but even atv's have trouble making it. Fall is spectacular
