MONTE CRISTO AREA
Miles: 12 roundtrip
Elevation: 2,000 feet gained
Monte Cristo Area
The official trailhead is in the southwest corner of the old town of Monte Cristo, four and a half miles from the Mountain Loop Highway. You hear Sunday Falls at the trailhead, which is hard to miss as you start a fairly mellow climb to Poodle Dog Pass and drop down to the lake. This is a cirque style lake that sits below Silvertip Peak. An up and down trail to Twin Lakes leaves from Poodle Dog Pass area, but has not been kept up.
