Description

A relatively flat 3/4 mile singletrack connecting Martin Creek Trail to the Angels Staircase, with a rest stop at Cooney Lake.

Cooney Lake is one of the famed Golden Lakes, so dubbed by pioneer guidebook authors Harvey Manning and Ira Spring because of the larches that set these alpine bodies of water aglow come autumn. Nestled in a high cirque on the serrated Sawtooth Ridge, on the eastern edge of the North Cascades, Cooney makes for a wonderful weekend adventure or is a good base for days of exploring.
