The Josephine Lake Trail (#296) (photo) is a family-friendly hike, also popular for fly-fishing. This beautiful 13-acre lake is tucked into a granite cirque. The 0.7-mile trail winds along a mountainside and past a small lake offering great views before climbing over a small rise and dropping down to Josephine Lake.
