Small Boats, No Motors Allowed
Lower Glidden Lake I believe is the highest lake in elevation that you drive right up to. This lake is absolutely beautiful with heavily forested alpine mountains surrounding the lake. Wildlife abound with brown and black bear (Grizzlies as reported), Elk, Deer, Mountain Lions, a variety of foul, etc. Rainbow and Brook Trout inhabit this lake. Motors are not allowed on this lake, which I'm sure the wildlife appreciate. There is a primitive boat launch. Hiking in this area is, of course, spectacular.
Upper Glidden Lake is to the south of this Lower Glidden Lake, which is smaller yet no less

I would NOT travel on this road in Spring (or winter) due to the unstable road conditions. Once at the lake the road goes northeast around the east side of the lake, which also takes you to the primitive launch. Info: As indicated previously, Fish & Game maps/info indicate there is a restroom but I was un-able to find one. This road will be very hard on any car, and without four wheel drive you most likely WILL get stuck. There are a couple deep ruts in the road. Do not drive in a car to this lake!
