The Wonderland Lake Loop is a true nature trail. The trail starts just down the backcountry access road from the large trail map sign. Turning right off the road into the forest, the trail meanders along granite rock bluffs, open meadows and vibrant coastal forest. Several viewpoints are scattered along the trail with the first one offering a great view of the Summit Lodge at the top of the Gondola. Other viewpoints with breathtaking vistas of Skypilot, Copilot and Goat Ridge abound throughout the trail and offer some great spots for a photo or a snack.
