Clover Creek Trailhead


Provides access to: Clover Creek Trail, the southern most trailhead entrance into the beautiful Mountain Lakes Wilderness, an area that surrounds a cluster of four overlapping shield volcanoes, the highest of which is 8,208 ft (2,502 m) Aspen Butte. Over 20 small lakes lie along the bottoms of several large large cirques carved by Ice Age glaciers near the summits of the volcanoes.

The Mountain Lakes Wilderness is unique among United States wilderness areas in that it is the only one whose borders form a square, occupying the 36 sq mi (93 km2) area of a single survey township.
