This trail only goes one way, up! Get ready to feel your thighs thump as you work your way up to better and better views. The hard work is well worth it though, as you reach the lake. This is one of the most scenic alpine lakes in the area that is accessible within a days climb. The lake was named after Grecian heroes and when you get to the lake you’ll know why. The wind-blasted rock that surrounds the lakes reminds one of the salty cliffs found throughout the Greek coast. Lots of great views and swimming opportunities on top. Take your time, explore the foothills, and praise to Zeus and the rest of the gang for such a spectacular setting.
