  • Elevation: 1753m
  • Where To Park: Arnica Lake Trailhead and drop a car at Floe Lake

Description: From the Arnica Lake Trailhead it’s a steep climb up to Arnica Lake on a good trail. From there it’s more rolling terrain on a slightly less traveled trail. Take the fork to Gibbon Pass and descend to Shadow Lake. Go right at the Lodge and then stay left towards Ball Pass. At the Ball Pass Campground head right over Ball Pass. The trail isn’t well maintained so be prepared for downed trees to climb over.
