Details

The trail climbs steeply from the trailhead through aspen groves for the first mile.  Then it climbs more gradually following along Booth Creek.  At mile 2, the trail passes 60 foot Booth Creek Falls.  Beyond the falls, the trail winds through conifer forests and meadows filled with wildflowers.  Above 10,000 feet the trees thin and the terrain changes offering views of the Gore Range.  The last 1/4 mile to Booth Lake is steeper and more rocky.

Notes

Booth Creek is within the Eagles Nest Wilderness Area.

This hike is beautifully described in the Spring 2013 issue of Trail & Timberline
