About This Spot

From the parking area, descend to cross Ruby Creek then head left for 2.8 miles to a junction. Following the East Bank Trail, hike up and over forested Hidden Hand Pass, finally reaching the lake shore at 7.5 miles. The views begin with a very special lake-hugging section of the trail between Rainbow Point Camp and Devils Junction where the trail has been blasted into the cliffs along the lakeshore with the water lapping at the rocks just a few feet below. Creek crossing are equally dramatic on airy bridges. Rainbow Point is an ideal place the make a base camp from which to photograph and explore up Ross Lake.
