One Horse Lakes and Lolo Peaks Area - 16aug11
Jim, Patrick, and I hiked to the six lakes in the neighborhood of Lolo Peak. Those lakes are Carlton, Little Carlton, McClain, Reed, and North and South One Horse Lakes. The trail is in good shape to both Carlton Lakes. Once past Little Carlton Lake the trail (to South One Horse Lake) is more difficult to follow and non-existent in places, no doubt because it is seldom used. There is no trail to either North One Horse or Reed Lake, but the terrain is open woods and easy to negotiate.
