Mohawk Lakes

Hiking in Breckenridge

Deep-green Lower Mohawk is tucked onto a tundra shelf with the ruins of a miner’s cabin just below. An outstanding, if slightly exposed, campsite is just south of the cabin. Upper Lake views are an even more spectacular moonscape: marbled rocks, stunted trees, inky lake views. That clear buzz is the quiet roar of the cosmos. It's 7 miles round trip.

The trailhead is located 1.2 miles up Spruce Creek Rd; the turnoff is 2.4 miles south of Breckenridge on Hwy 9 (towards Hoosier Pass).
