Two blue tarns in the alpine meadows above Lillian Lake are well worth the effort.
Start: Hwy. 40 Galatea day-use area.
The trail is closed from May 1st to late June each year.
Difficulty: A good well-marked trail to Lillian Lake, followed by a moderate section of trail into the cirque above.
An alternative to visiting the upper lake is a new trail to Guinn's Pass that starts shortly before the first lake. From the pass you can climb the small hill to the east. See Guinn's Pass
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
