“Short spur trail off Terrace, Shadow and Cliff Lakes Trail, leading to Cliff Lake in a cirque below snowy Reading Peak.”— Joan Pendleton
Cliff Lake Spur starts off from Terrace, Shadow, and Cliff Lakes Trail by descending through the firs. Cliff Lake and its outlet stream are reached after 0.15 miles. Without crossing the outlet stream, the trail follows the lake's shoreline to the lake's inlet stream. From here, one can go a short ways upstream along the cascading inlet stream.
