After hiking along the forested creek valley for 2.5 miles past pools and small waterfalls, you climb onto an open rockslide area from which Goat Mountain is clearly visible across the lake. Just before reaching the lake, the trail passes Otokomi Campground to the left. The trail bends around to the southwest before arriving at the outlet to Otokomi Lake." Read more
