Bowman Lake Professional Review and Guide
"This trail follows the northwestern shore of Bowman Lake for 7 miles of gentle up-and-down hiking. Use it as a backpack route in itself or as a day hike of any length. The trail winds past Bowman Lake before ascending a U-shaped valley carved by a glacier between rugged peaks. Views across the lake include the glacier-carved summits of Square Peak, Rainbow Peak, and Mount Carter. The lake is prime osprey and bald eagle habitat and is often closed to boating, fishing, and hiking above the upper campground to protect active eagle nests. Loons are frequently sighted on the lake’s surface. The backcountry campsite near the head of the lake is popular with hikers and boaters alike."
