This is a really good trail if you are with less experienced hikers. While its not technically challenging the views and route are beautiful. Avalanche lake is a stunning place to finish and the perfect spot for a picnic.

This is a very beautiful mountain lake hemmed in by Mt. Colden and Avalanche Mtn. There are several ways to get to it but one is at the end of a long slog up Misery Hill.
