After spending a relaxing evening car camping in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness we decided to take a hike to Three Island Lake. The route is only seven miles roundtrip, but does include 1,600' of climbing in the first three miles. The lake itself is a great place to have a picnic, or bird watch. While there we watched a Bald Eagle soaring around. I wouldn't say that this would be a hike to go out of your way for, but if you are camping in the area I would highly recommend it.
