“A short spur trail north of the Glen Creek Trail that leads to shallow, 16-acre Cache Lake.
— Tom Carter
Cache Lake lies in a Bear Management Area; from May 1 to November 10, no off-trail running is permitted.
The Cache Lake Trail is a spur trail running north from the Glen Creek Trail
to the small 16-acre lake. The lake is shallow, averaging just 4 feet, with a maximum depth of 12 feet. It has no significant fish population. Years ago there was a backcountry campsite on Cache Lake. Since its removal there is little reason to visit the lake.
