Deception Pass Trail, Hayas Lake, Lake Clarice, Marmot Lake, Jade Lake
Cooper River to Spectacle Lake
We decided to avoid wading the river, right up of Pete's Lake, just not to get wet. The thinking was, it's just an extra mile to the PCT, and half a mile from there to the junction of the PCT with the already planned trail (about 30 minutes).
What we didn't know was that we would be facing a worse wading at the PCT ( :D )... there's a missing bridge!!!
Nevertheless our rookie mistake, It's one of the most magnificent hikes around!!
All views are stunning.
The camping ground is good; all spots with gorgeous views.
It's a relatively long hike (11 ~ 13 miles leg, depending on route), with mild elevation gain (total).
