    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Middle Settlement Lake is the star attraction of the 26,528-acre Ha-de-rondah Wilderness, an area that was severely burned by forest fires many decades ago. The landscape was denuded by that fire, making it worthless to its owners, who ultimately sold it to the state. The forest has since grown back to reclaim the valleys, hills and shorelines, although in terms of the slow life processes of trees the forest is still in an early stage of succession."
