The 1.5-mile maintained trail to Ruth Lake sees plenty of traffic— the string of high-elevation tarns sprinkled above it, not so much. Ditch the crowds and strike

out to the northwest to wander through a boulder-strewn play- ground at 10,000 feet. Choose a campsite at Hayden, Naomi, Fir, Jewel, Cutthroat, or Teal Lakes, or connect them all for a quick- escape 5-mile cross-country loop. Infofs.usda.gov/uwcnf
