Navajo Lake is probably the most popular destination in the Lizard Head Wilderness Area. Not only is the lake itself an alpine gem, but it is located in a ruggedly beautiful basin that is surrounded on three sides by 13,000-foot ridges and three 14,000-foot peaks (Wilson Peak, Mount Wilson, and El Diente Peak). Peak baggers often use Navajo Basin as a base for climbing these three peaks.
