Lieutenant Lake, Lowest of the Soldier Lakes.

While staying at Josephus Lake Campground I made the 4 mile hike to the Soldier Lakes area in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. This was a moderate 8 mile round trip with about 1,000 ft of elevation gain before dropping a couple hundred feet back down to the lakes. The trail up is pretty gradual so this can be pretty easy in and out backpacking trip. There are several really nice camping spots along the shore of each of the lakes. Lieutenant Lake is probably the most scenic due to be set up agains a rock wall. See the GAIA GPS data for more details and trail photos.
