  • Spotted 2 black bears by the parking lot and a grizzly mother and her cub 5 minutes into the trail back in July 2018. This hike is challenging and strenuous, but totally worth it for the views of both lakes. Be sure to follow the signs for Amphitheater Lake - with heavy snowfall sometimes the signs are buried and difficult to find.
  • Beautiful lake to hike up to. Make a great long day hike to go up here and back in one day.
