A challenging day hike or short backpack over a high pass to Willow Lake. This trail climbs over the high divide of Willow Pass to reach a remote alpine basin. During clear weather, you can take in spectacular views of Pyramid Peak and the Maroon Bells along the climb. Strong hikers might be able to reach Willow Lake in a day trip, but for most, reaching this lake requires an overnight trip.
