“Beautiful!”

An all time favorite hike. My husband and I did Phelps Lake Loop and part of Death canyon hike. I highly recommend it.

Very nice streams and lake. Beautiful place to take a hike or long walk or settle in with a picnic lunch.

“Nice place, nice moderate hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

The visitor's center is a walk from the parking lot. The center is smaller than it looks in the pictures, but it is new and nice. It has a small ranger's desk, but there is no gift shop here and not much information. There is a little library area.
There is a moderate hike to Phelps Lake that is pleasant. If you take the longer route, it goes up and down and is a little easier. The shorter route is pretty much a long climb up to the lake. Phelps lake is pretty and makes for good pictures and a pleasant place to stop and relax. There is a bathroom near the lake and down by the shore at the end of the long trail there are benches and rocks for a nice picnic.
Be aware that this trail is rocky so you need good shoes and a walking stick or two is a good idea. This is not an easy hike, especially if you are out of shape.

“Great addition to the park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

A great hike to the Lake and terrific historical background of the JY Ranch by the park attendant when we came back.
What a gift and foresight by Mr. Laurance
