A great choice for the first-time backpacker, with moderate effort required for some seriously scenic payoff. Pack your stuff
in 3.5 miles to overnight at Island Lake beneath soaring Mt. Price. The dramatically stark granite terrain dotted with shock-blue
lakes is the definition of high country. Next morning, you’re set to explore the lakes and passes higher up the slope—and
out of day-hiker range.
