Description

Hiker will wade Wildhorse Creek up a rocky area with scattered fir and aspen. The Devil’s Bedstead Peak is clearly visible from the head of the trail, and the first two miles will be an easy to moderate climb. The trail branches left to Boulder lake or straight up the mountain to Washington lake. Both lakes are above the timberline and offer fishing opportunities for those who are willing to traverse an unmarked area since the trail to the lakes is barely visible. This area is known for the mountain goats, eagles, pine squirrels, blue grouse and deer.
