Lemish Lake

Lemish Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Sometimes you just want to get away from people and have a solitary outing in the woods. If this is what you’re feeling, then Lemish Lake is a perfect run for you. Though not the most scenic on the list, it’s pleasant enough, and you’re guaranteed to be able to count the number of other trail users seen on one hand.

From the trailhead, run up the well-worn singletrack through forests of ponderosa pine and hemlock. At 0.5 mile, you’ll encounter your first junction and the beginnings of Lemish Lake. Several campsites dot the shores just to the left of the junction. Turn right toward Charlton Lake, following the mountain bike pointers. Cross the outlet creek for Lemish Lake and keep left at the second junction, staying on the Charlton Lake Trail 19. From here, the trail parallels the lakeshore with nice views until it veers back up into the thicker forests."
