Length: 9.2 km
Condition: Excellent well constructed parks trail, no deadfall, dry and level
General Route: Starts from the dam at the east end Lightning Lakes and climbs up the ridge to Frosty.
How to Find: From the Lightning Lakes parking lot, go around to the east end of the lake on the old earth dam. As soon as you are across the dam, you will come to the junction where the "Frosty Loop Trail" heads uphill and the Lightning Lake Trail stays along the lake. There is a signpost.
Trail Description: The trail climbs steadily till it reaches the official campsite at the head of the small stream shown on the 1:50K map. (One outhouse, three level spots, a small stream, food cache, and a beaten down cabin). This is the only water till you get close to the peak, and may not have water in late season. Once past the campsite, the trail levels out on the top of the ridge, going through the spectacular larch trees. The final section of the trail climbs the north ridge of the east peak of Frosty Mountain. At the top of the north ridge there is a junction with the trail coming up from Windy Joe.
