Lake of the Horns is a blue in color and the water is clear. You have to cross the Highwood River which can be high earlier in the year. As usual with the lakes in this area the trail follows a steep headwall up to the lake. This headwall trail probably gains the most elevation in the shortest distance in comparison with Carnarvon or Loomis.
The cutthroat in this lake are plentiful and you can sight fish when the wind is calm. The fish in this lake are nicely sized with the complete variety of sizes from minnows up to the 15" fish above and perhaps higher.
