The first 0.8 mile of Geiger Lakes Trail (656) is through lodgepole pine, then it opens to subalpine vegetation. Lower Geiger Lake is reached at about 2 miles; the trail continues to Trail 48 which leads to Upper Geiger Lake. This trail connects to Fourth of July Trail 115 and Divide Trail 360, so several circle and one-way trips may be made. Trail 656 climbs and continues to Lost Buck Pass and Trail 360, offering scenic views including an overlook to the west into Wanless Lake. No motorized vehicles are permitted on this trail, and no vehicles are allowed within the wilderness boundary.
