Trail Lake from Silver Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Just south of the summer resort area Silver Lake, a little-used path offers a gently graded stroll to shallow, forest- rimmed Trail Lake, a classic example of the numerous lakes that dot this part of Lassen National Forest.
Although this description ends at the lake, the trail continues another 3-plus miles to a trailhead near Echo Lake. Be aware that this is a designated mountain bike route, but chances are slim that you’ll encounter anyone, whether on a bike, on foot, or on a horse. Parking is extremely limited at the Silver Lake Trailhead but appears to be more than adequate for the extremely limited amount of use the trail receives."
