Fox Creek Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Fox Creek Ridge Trail is the shortest and easiest way to reach Mavis and Fox Creek Lakes, two small lakes in a forested basin on the north side of the Scott Mountain divide (the basin can also be accessed via the Pacific Crest Trail). Each lake has a companion pond, reachable by relatively easy off-trail routes that add to the exploring opportunities. Unlike the other trails on this side of the Scott Mountain divide, which tend to follow canyon bottoms, the Fox Creek Ridge Trail does just what the name implies—follows the spine of a ridge. As such, the forested route has far less cow sign than most other hikes on this side of the divide. Highlights: A pleasant hike to a forested basin with four small lakes to explore."

Just as the guide warned, the first section is attention getting! But after that it is a wonderful shaded ridge route, very well maintained. Plan to enjoy your lunch in a beautiful setting at the lake.
