This is a 4 mile trail each direction. Scenery is beautiful, lots of wildlife. I usually see goats on the rocks above lakes, but not today. Alternate trail in starts at marble pass where road 7240 crosses the Elkhorn crest trail, this keeps you on the ridge until directly above lakes then steep descent into lakes themselves. This trail gives great overlooks of the Baker valley, and Phillips reservoir, along with the Sumpter valley.

From historic Sumpter to the beautiful mountains, this trail in beautiful Eastern Oregon has it all. Be sure to allow enough time to spend in Sumpter. Named after Fort Sumpter, it has historic, quaint, a splash of modern and scenery in every direction.
