traverses to Frozen Lake. Just beyond the lake is a major trail intersection with branches to Mt. Fremont, Sunrise Camp, Burroughs, and west along the Wonderland trail to Berkeley Park and Skyscraper. From the intersection the trail crosses a steep snowfield that often does not melt out, if at all, until August; this part of the trail it can be quite treacherous when snow covered. At the end of this traverse the hiker has the option of taking a short (.5 mile) side trip to Second Burroughs Mountain for even better views. Turning south the tail loses elevation to the lookout over the White River and Emmonds Glacier before continuing down into the Sunrise Camp. From the camp it is a gentle rise back to Sunrise.
