    The hike from the trailhead gains slight elevation and is beautiful and is quite level until you reach the fork to either head straight ahead to Broadbent meadow or fork left to head up towards the lake. The elevation from there is intense for most of the rest of the hike. Once at the lake though it absolutely takes your breath away and is worth every hard earned step. Trout in the lake of a good size. Fresh water source into the major lake on the south side. Stunning. Lodge pole pines primarily.

    Great views from the top. Scramble is very manageable. The flat miles feel pretty annoying and long on the way out. I enjoyed the loop part into the basin, recommend if you have the time. The shorter way is a bit steep and loose in the incline section, then going over the rock field is a bit of a pain. But it definitely cuts time and distance if you need that.

    Absolutely beautiful backpacking trip. Still a bit wet, and you can lose the trail pretty easily at the top. Amazing view of Amethyst Basin and the lake is absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend this route for any moderate to experienced backpacker.

    Area was burned in 2018 and Scudder Lake may not be a great destination for a few years.
