Features Lake · Swimming

This trail is within the Marble Mountain Wilderness and the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics. Camp 100 feet from fragile areas; bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually closed by snow between November and May.

Need to Know

Although it's a wilderness, this area is open to grazing in the summer, so expect to meet a cow or two. Be sure to treat or filter all of your water, even that which you get from the lakes.

Description

Note that this trail, as built, does not coincide with how it is shown on most maps (other than Open Street Maps).

This trail leaves the Shackleford Trail #5542 4.0 miles from the trailhead and climbs to Campbell Lake. A mile from the #5542, it passes a junction with the Campbell Cutoff Trail #5543, and 0.1 miles past that, a junction with the Bull Meadows Trail #5548 and the Cliff Lake Trail #5544. It ends at the southern end of Campbell Lake.

Flora & Fauna

Campbell Lake is a popular lake for fishing with a variety of Eastern brook, rainbow, and brown trout.
