Description

Cliff Lake Spur can be found 2.2 miles from the Terrace, Shadow, and Cliff Lakes Trail start. It leads to Cliff Lake, a small, clear gem-like lake below Reading Peak.

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.
