Description

The moderate Ghost Lake Trail starts at the end of Summit Trail. The path is a rocky trail with two slightly steep rocky descents. While running east on the trail, you'll find a short path to the ruins of an old cabin, and a nice view of the surrounding area. Back on the trail, you'll pass some big boulders on the left before you find yourself in a ravine. Along the ravine, enjoy the sound of gurgling water below you as you make your way toward Ghost Lake. Cross Ghost Lake on a raised berm before finding yourself at the end of the trail at its junction with Shades of Death Road.
