Trail Overview

Difficulty

Difficult: The trail to Mirror Lake has one hill that will likely require winching. The 150-yard hill is very steep with large boulders that move around. Tight trees add to the likelihood of vehicle damage. The trail to Strawberry Lake has large boulders too, but is much flatter.
