What a spectacular place to hike! I drove up to Summit Lake at Hatcher Pass and hiked up the April Bowl Trail. Beautiful lakes and creeks and ice fields are up there. At the highest point I had a great view of Summit Lake. I really wanted to work my way down to Summit Lake but as I wandered along the rocky ridge I didn't really find a place that looked very safe. I know it could be done because I met a guy who had just come up that way. But I didn't want to risk a bad fall, so turned around and went back down the same trail I came up on. It was so nice that I enjoyed going both ways. I figure it was about 4 miles round trip.
