    Coney Lake and Upper Coney Lake Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Coney and Upper Coney lakes, surrounded by masses of rock rubble from icy sculpture, feature piles of stones and natural gardens, perfect habitat for the diminutive, cute critter for which the lakes are named. To reach the Coney Creek Trail and the lakes of the same name from Beaver Reservoir, begin by hiking up National Forest System Road (NFSR) 507.

    This road to Coney Flats is described by the Forest Service as “a rocky, 4WD EXTREME route for experienced drivers only with a high clearance 4WD vehicle.” This description is generous. The road is tough for 4WD vehicles, tougher for hikers, and impossible for normal passenger cars. The large rocks kicked up by 4WD vehicles are hard on booted feet."
