Description

This is a broad, fairly level trail which is generally in good condition (except for a few large mudholes). It rises gently through meadows of grass and wildflowers as well as stands of lodgepole pine. From the fire trail junction you will have a moderate climb over a well marked trail to the Kermsuh Lake Junction. From here you climb steeply to get onto the basin below Hayden Peak. Kennsuh Lake lies at the head of the Basin just across the ridge north of Ryder and McPheters Lakes in Middle Basin. It is a nice place for camping, fishing and solitude; not too crowded. The meadows and surrounding camp areas, a half mile below the lake, offer good protection from the weather and ample firewood if conserved.
