“A route through old-growth forest to a large alpine lake with views of beautiful Johnson Peak.”— Sarah Baker
Within a short distance of the lake, the trail leaves the wilderness and descends to the lake. The trail contours along the lake where it passes many campsites along the lakeshore. If you are just there for the day, take in the views of Johnson Peak and the forested islands across Packwood Lake before returning the way you came.
The 452-acre lake is located at the headwaters of Lake Creek and was formed when a large mass of soil and rock slid off Snyder Mountain and dammed Lake Creek 1,200 years ago.
