A steep climb to a gorgeous mountain lake, well suited for a weekend trip and with a special view of the entire West Fork of Rock Creek valley. The trail passes close by Calamity Falls and Sentinel Falls. These cascades are reminders that the West Fork is not only a peaceful stream meandering out of the wilderness, but that it can also be a powerful force. Short spur trails lead to both falls for better views. The West Fork broadens and slows as the trail nears Quinnebaugh Meadows. Look for the sign for Lake Mary just after breaking out into the enormous mountain meadow.
