The Surprise Lake Trail provides access from the Summit Trail to Surprise Lake in the Sawtooth Wilderness. The trail begins at Mule Shoe Camp and travels through subalpine forest and meadows. The lake lies in a narrow basin and the trail descends 1,000 feet to the lake. The last mile of trail is very steep, rocky, and not recommended for beginning stock handlers. The junction with the Indianhead Basin Trail #1250 is at the 1.3 mile point. There are camps at 1.4 miles and at the lake. Horses can be grazed on the hillside north of Surprise Lake, but are discouraged on the inlet meadow. This trail receives annual maintenance.
Directions: From Moore Point, This trail provides access from the Summit Trail to Surprise Lake.
