    This hike STARTS at Lower Cataract Lake, and is 6.2 miles round trip. The map shown above is wrong. Also, the road to the trail head is closed November through April and the "Season Popularity" to the left is wrong. <====> That being said, Surprise Lake is typical hike through the Eagles Nest Wilderness and Surprise Lake is a beautiful high alpine lake.
