Cobb Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A pleasant forested walk to Cobb Lake. Leaving the parking area, this hike winds 1.7 kilometers downhill through a thick forest filled with lodgepole pine and white spruce, as well as some fire-scarred Douglas fir trees, whose thick bark has enabled them to withstand the heat of past forest fires. You may also see some blue clematis alongside this pleasant trail.After crossing Swede Creek, the trail works uphill at a slight grade until it reaches a small boggy lake. The lake is filled with rarely caught brook and cutthroat (native) trout. Stocking lakes with non-native sport fish is no longer practiced in the mountain parks, as it diminishes the quality of our aquatic ecosystems. Although Mount Sinclair (2,662 m) sits to your right (southwest) of the lake, you may only glimpse a corner of its peak through the dense forest."
