Hike to Mystery Lake

3.1 miles 492.1 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by John Entwistle

A short 1 hour hike to a beautiful alpine lake at the Mt. Seymour ski area. 

From the Mt. Seymour ski area parking lot, head towards the Mystery Peak Express. Once you have passed the base of the Mystery Peak Express, you will continue up the trail to your left (right goes to dog mountain, straight to the 3 peaks of Seymour). 

Follow the trail all the way up to the lake. The trail is fairly technical but short (therefore the "intermediate" rating)

Nice little spot on the hike up to Dog Peak

You'll pass this little tiny watering hole on the way up to Dog Peak, it's a peaceful spot and the water is almost guaranteed to be glass calm because it is quite protected. Don't venture off the trail as the city is trying to protect the marine species in this lake!
