Nannie Creek / Puck Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Nannie Creek Trail (#3707) and Puck Lake boast two of the most fun names in any wilderness. Puck Lake ranks among the Sky Lakes’ most isolated, blue, and serenely beautiful bodies of water. The drive to the trailhead offers majestic panoramas of Upper Klamath Lake (Oregon’s largest natural lake), the Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, the flat ranchlands above Upper Klamath Lake, and the high peaks of the Cascades immediately west. Much of the Sky Lakes, the Mountain Lakes basin, and the Crater Lake rim are visible from Westside Road.

The forests along the Nannie Creek Trail are very “east side,” with smaller trees and less underbrush than their west-side counterparts due to less precipitation. The reason is that Devil’s Peak and Mount McLoughlin form a rain shadow, diminishing weather systems from the west."

8-10-08. Nice easy hike for kids. Mosquitoes weren't too bad, water wasn't too cold, and we even found some ripe huckleberries. Nice campsite at the lake. Plan to go back with an inflatable raft to check out the island.
