Route Description

Indulge yourself with spellbinding views of the Wind River Range, nearby lakes, and the distant plains. Boasting perfect postcard scenery, this route is not without its challenges. The climb up to Blueberry Lake is gradual but intense. Come prepared to navigate some blowdown and experience some extreme conditions from the exposed terrain. Pack plenty of water to stay hydrated, and wear a sturdy pair of footwear! Note that while bear encounters are unlikely, encouraged hikers to bring bear spray, just in case.

Embark on your adventure from the Burnt Connection Trailhead. From here, you will be guided southwest along the ridges above Boulder Lake. Enjoy the views of the glittering lake and, in the spring, revel in the sight of the blossoming wildflowers. After some hiking, you will reach a junction. Here, veer right, and you will be diverted onto the Blueberry Lake Trail. Beyond this point, you will begin a more intense climb up to the charming alpine lake.

From the lakeshore, you will be granted impressive views of the foothills, the nearby alpine lakes, and distant views of the plains. Notice Burnt Lake in the northwest and Boulder Lake in the southwest. When you are through admiring the scenery, retrace your footing back to the trailhead.
