Route Description

From the parking lot head east along the south side of the lake on the Anthony Shoreline Trail, 1605. After less than a ¼ mile turn right on the Hoffer Lakes Trail, 1641. Climb this low to moderate grade trail for approximately ½ mile to the lakes. Continue west on the 1641 trail out of the basin to where it meets up with road 7300-187. Continue up the road to the ridge top where the road splits. Keep south on the ridge and walk another couple hundred yards or so to where the road appears to split again. Actually the road goes right to the Crawford Basin trailhead and what appears to be a left branch in the road is the start of the Lakes Lookout Trail. From this point it’s just a little over half a mile to the top.

Essential Gear

Good hiking boots are all that is required.
