The trail (marked 661 on the San Juan National Forest Recreation Map) leaves the bottom of a small draw and climbs out to the northeast. The trail passes through aspen forests and skirts large rock outcroppings while following a small creek that drains from the lake. The lake is stocked, and fishing is fair. The view to the south is of the Hermosa Cliffs, Animas Valley and West Needle Mountains.
