DescriptionThis trail connects the Highline Trail near Pigeon Milk Springs with the scenic Four Lakes Basin. Four Lakes Basin Trail crosses the end of a boulder-covered ridge and about 1 1/2 miles south and east of Pigeon Milk Springs reaches a nice viewpoint overlooking Four Lakes Basin. This basin, about 4 miles from the trailhead at its furthest point, is a very scenic, open area at the base of glaciated mountains. It consists of four good fishing lakes: Jean, Dean, Dale and Daynes. These lakes, being further in, do not get nearly as heavy use as Naturalist Basin. Cutthroat, brook trout and grayling are found here. In addition to the official trails, a large number of informal trails and off-trail cross-country routes exist in this area.
2 miles to Four Lakes Basin, another 4 miles to the middle of Brinton Meadow
