Robin Lakes Trail #1376.1

The Robin Lakes Trail begins at Deception Pass Trail #1376 and ends at Robin Lake. This is a hiker only trail that accesses the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area.

From the junction with 1376, the trail heads southeast along the mountainside and through forest. This trail was originally user-built and not maintained every year. It begins a steep climb, winding through the trees and bluffs. After about 1 mile, the trail reaches more level ground and comes into the semi-open area around Tuck Lake, which is surrounded by rounded, glacier polished granite bluffs. From here, the trail can be indistinct at times as it crosses the rocks, but cairns mark its course. It passes between the lake and Tucks Pot and heads up a series of rock bluffs, curves left into a gully, climbs up the middle of the steep cirque, reaches level ground, and continues east to Robin Lakes. Please remember to camp away from the lakeshores and at established sites. Campfires are prohibited at this and all areas above 5000 feet in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
