Redfish Lake to Alpine Lake is one of the more popular trails visitors choose to take when visiting Stanley. You’ll want to follow the Redfish Lake Inlet Trail to a fork named Flat Rock Junction. Once you reach this fork, you’ll begin to ascend to Alpine Lake – just be sure to follow the signs pointing you to the right. This trail climbs rapidly through a variety of switchbacks and gives you an excellent sweat-inducing workout until you reach your destination.
