Owner description: Scenic lake located off the Alpine Lake Loop hiking trail in the Great Basin National Park.
Reviewed 9 September 2017

Stella Lake sits in the shadow of Wheeler Peak. It is part of the Alpine Lakes Trail. It is an awesome loop trail. We spent time there waiting for the wind to stop to take some photos and then we skipped lots of rocks. I think there was about a 450 foot elevation gain on the Alpine Lakes Trail. If you're hiking Wheeler Peak, it is only .10 miles out of the way to Stella Lake.

Definitely worth the hike to see the lake. Make sure to bring plenty of water to drink along the way because it can get hot along the hike.

We hiked to this lake from Bristlecone Trail and were not impressed as there has been little rain and the lake was not too large. However, the trail continues on to Theresa Lake, which WAS impressive and then through an Aspen grove that will take your breath away in the fall. So give the overall hike consideration, but dont rate the whole hike based on this one lake.

Delightful hike. Very high altitude. Weather can change on you. Be prepared. Good for children if you don't rush things.

Lovely and easy hike from Summit trail head. Beautiful Aspen groves, and super views of Wheeler Mt. The last 4 years have been very dry but the lake is still lovely and pristine. No fish live in either of the alpine lake. We came across a rafter of wild turkeys. Not going to be a spoiler but make sure you ask a local or a ranger how they got there and what kind of turkeys they are.
