Clearwater Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Clearwater Lake reposes beneath Ptarmigan Mountain at the foot of the Swan Mountain Range. The 1 20-acre lake is completely surrounded by a lush, old-growth forest. The Swan Mountain Range looms to the east while the Mission Mountain Range stretches across the western horizon. This easy, level trail circles the perimeter of the lake, which lies a short distance from the headwaters of the Clearwater River. Ducks and loons are frequently spotted on the lake."
