Deep in the heart of the wilderness, the true jewel of the region is Patterson Lake. Large in size for a mountain lake, the 700-foot vertical volcanic slope of Warren Peak forms an unforgettable backdrop beneath a blue sky. At 9,000 feet in elevation, healthy whitebark pines and wildflowers ring the other sides. The lake is especially beautiful at sunset and sunrise and offers reliable fishing for trout (mostly rainbows) up to 12 inches.
