Sand Ridge Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Pacific Crest Trail north of I-80 is a relatively popular path, leading to a variety of attractive destinations, including scenic lakes, lush meadows, and high summits.

This trip heads to one of the least-visited spots in the general area: Sand Ridge Lake. While the shallow body of water won’t make anyone’s top ten list of scenic wonders, the serene lake does provide pleasant surroundings along with the potential for seclusion."
