The Elusive beautiful Columbine Lake. Many hikers seek it, few make it there. It’s not easy but it is worth the effort.
These Google Earth images show popular trail and Mountain routes to Columbine from the OPUS Hut.
The first image shows the treeline traverse around the east end of the Lookout Peak ridge.
The second shows the difficult but fast route through Ruby Lake , northeast of the hut.
The third image shows the difficult, fastest route over the top of Peak 13,330 directly north of the hut.
