From this trailhead you have the option of a great Gore Range loop. You can hike from Gore lake to Deluge lake via the Snow Lake valley then up and over Snow pass. This is an easy connection, but has no trail to follow, so bring a map.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
