Two mirror-like lakes reflect picture-perfect images of the peaks. Enjoy fishing for cutthroat, rainbow and brook trout in Red Rock and Brainard lakes or take the Long Lake Trail for more incredibly beautiful views of the landscape. Camping is available with a permit. If you are visiting in winter, be very cautious of avalanches.
