The Loch - 3 miles
The trail is the same as the Mills Lake trail for the first two miles. Then the path parallels the Icy Brook before climbing up a series of switchbacks into the Loch Vale and on to The Lock with its dazzling scene. Abner Spraque named the lake after a Mr. Locke from Kansas City, but use the Scottish spelling of the lake and valley. The trail continues to Timberline Falls.
