Continue along the trail to go to Greendrop Lake. The trail winds along the lake side, across a rock slide and goes past the north end of Lindeman Lake. Due to the rocks and talus it can be tricky walking in some areas. The trail passes through open slopes and forested areas. Close to Greendrop Lake there will be a fork. The right fork goes to the near end of Greendrop Lake. The left fork which is part of the Centennial Trail climbs above the lake and provides excellent views.
