Route Description for Honeymoon Lake Trail
The Honeymoon Lake Trail does not have much shade along its extent, so it is therefore important you protect yourself from the sun with a good hat and lots of sunscreen. Likewise, the route is over fairly steep terrain, so we suggest wearing a good pair of hiking boots. Your knees and ankles will be happy!
Having parked your car, locate the Trailhead at the southern section of the parking lot. Follow the Pine Creek Pass Trail as it makes its way southwest over steadily inclining terrain. After crossing a number of creeks, you will soon arrive at a switchback section within the trail. Continuing up along the switchbacks through increasingly steep terrain, you will eventually reach a plateau within the trail, and arrive at Pine Lake.
The trail will follow the northern, and then western shore of Pine lake before heading south and arriving at Upper Pine Lake. Having passed adjacent to the western shore of Upper Pine Lake, you will cross a series of creeks before reaching picturesque Honeymoon Lake. Take some time and enjoy the incredible sights before backtracking your steps towards the trailhead.
