The Loch

The Loch Professional Review and Guide

"The name of this lake is a pun dreamed up by pioneer innkeeper Abner Sprague to commemorate a guest of his named Locke. The name is Scottish for “The Lake,” and so great are the charms of this lake that many hikers agree that it is appropriate to call it simply The Lake."
