Backpack to Square Lake, a lovely alpine lake near the crest of the Wenatchee Mountains. Square Lake is a large lake set in a deep, rocky basin against the east slope of he Wenatchee Mountains divide, just southeast of Thunder Mountain, less than 1 mile as the eagle flies from Surprise Gap. It is reached via a 3.5-mile spur trail from Leland Creek Trail. The trail is rugged and not well maintained, but that’s just fine with the handful of hikers who visit; it keeps the casual hikers away.
