Peggy's Pond

Given how rough the Peggy's Pond side trail is, it is fortunate that it is only about 1.0 mile in length. A final short but agonizing set of switchbacks takes us up the last couple hundred feet and delivers us to Peggy's Pond.

It seems impossible that a lake of this size could exist here, tucked into the side of the mountain so close to Cathedral Rock, but yet, there it is. The cool water is welcome to hot feet. What a great spot to stop for lunch!
