Missouri Lakes

Missouri Pass - Fancy Pass - Fancy Lake

This is one of my favorite hikes, although one of the toughest. Nearly 9 miles of high country hiking while traversing 2 high mountain passes.  The hike begins at Missouri Lakes Trail head and ends at the Fancy Lake Trail head. During this hike there are beautiful, tumble creeks and deep gorges. In addition to Missouri Lakes and Fancy Lake, Treasure Vault Lake and Blodgett Lake.
