Additional Details:
At the first trail junction, take the left-hand fork trail (it is well marked) as it goes up Ostler Creek. The trail will be very steep for the first two miles, but then it levels out in a meadow basin area. Amethyst lake has no trail to it so bring a good topographical map and a good compass. You should plan to camp in the area adjacent to the large meadow below Amethyst Lake since firewood is scarce higher up and there is more protection from the weather here. ..Campground and parking at the trailhead. Horse ramp available
