Description

A skin track will get set by someone, and become well established by all who'll follow, that takes the right-fork at the sign up Mill D North Fork that heads towards Desolation Lake. The line drawn on the map is an approximate location of that track. (Note that the sign may be completely buried beneath the snow, so look for a prominent fork in the skin track.)

This area is breathtaking, and an easy skin at an easy grade. Watch out for moose.

Once at the lake, there are many options, but this place is much more avalanche-prone than its neighboring Powder Park Route area.
