The Lake Twenty Two hike is essentially the Heather Lake hike on crack. There was a lot more to see scenery wise, the trail was better maintained, and it was definitely a far better workout without your lungs imploding. The end result, as you can see from the pictures, is nearly identical to the Heather Lake hike, but the trail there was far more amazing. There’s a waterfall around the halfway point where you can get out onto a huge fallen tree for a nice front row view. I also tried to rock-hop out to a huge boulder in the middle, and ended up slipping and falling into the lake… so yeah, I’d probably try to avoid that. The water was freezing and I’m pretty sure my balls didn’t drop back out of body for a good month to ensure their safety.
