Attractions & Considerations: The Williams Lake Trail winds for one mile through sub-alpine forests and meadows, ending at the lake. The lake sits at the base of Bear's Breast Mountain and offers spectacular perspective to Bear's Breast Mountain and Summit Chief Peak. There are excellent camping sites along the west shore of the lake and plenty of fishing opportunities, as well as berry picking 1
