Duck Lake

Duck Lake is a small lake just within the boundary of the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness. The 1.2 mile hike to the lake is scenic and pleasant, with some moderate ups and downs. Early in the season, the trail and meadow near the lake becomes wet and muddy, with lots of mosquitoes -- so bring your repellent! Taking the loop trail around Duck Lake will add about 2 miles to your hike. Enter the trail at the Silver Valley trailhead, located at the east entrance road to Lake Alpine off Ebbetts Pass National Scenic Byway or Highway 4.
