Autumn hike to the Rampart Lakes via Lake Lillian

The Rampart Lakes have been on my short list for a long time! Most folks go via the Rachel Lake trail, but I’d heard about a different route that sneaks you in via a steep boot trail that’s not on any map.

The trail is ridiculously steep in some areas. Fun!

Made it!

Surprised how many other folks are camping out in the cold wet weather!

Still managed to score a nice lakeside spot with a nice view 🙂

The weather only got worse – drizzle and rain. Fortunately I stayed warm and dry in my little tent ⛺
