Blue Lake Trail to Clark Peak
One of the most popular Cameron Pass area trails offers easy, short, roundtrip excursions; a challenging all-day adventure; or a backpack trip to a pristine mountain lake surrounded by towering mountains. This trail offers almost everything—stately trees, pretty riparian areas, nice meadows, stream crossings, and a winding tree-covered path with striking views. It can be used for a relatively easy, 5-mile, out-and-back trip or moderate-to-difficult, 12.5-mile trip to the lake. Hiking all the way to the lake is an all-day adventure; don’t attempt it if heavy weather is predicted unless you start early and are well prepared, or you may end up dodging lightning bolts. It is a popular overnight destination for backpackers but can also be a moderate to challenging and highly satisfying dayhike if you are fit. If you start at the crack of dawn, you can summit Clark Peak.
