Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

The way to Desolation Lake.

Spencer Parkin
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

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.

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.
