This is a moderate climb with fair fishing at the lake. There is limited camping (stoves ONLY) at the lake due to the fragile alpine tundra, it's recommended that you camp below the timberline. The trail follows Grizzly Creek, ascending through spruce forest for the first 2 miles. The trail is moderate until the last 3/4 miles, where it becomes steep. The lake is not visible until you climb the last steep section. Early in the summer the last portion may still have snow.

Directions: From Aspen, Drive 10 miles east of Aspen on Highway 82 to Lincoln Creek Road. Turn right and drive 6.1 miles on Lincoln Creek Road to Grizzly Creek Reservoir. The trailhead is on the left just after the reservoir, but before Portal Campground.
