Maxwell Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Day hike or backpack from Maxwell Lake Trailhead on the Lostine River Road to Maxwell Lake. (Trail 1674) The alpine setting of the lake and the views along the trail make it well worth the climb.

Walk across the Lostine River Road and through the campground. Then head west and cross the Lostine River on a bridge. Seventy-five feet after crossing the river is the Eagle Cap Wilderness boundary sign. At 0.2 mile there is a major creek crossing (5,470 ft.). This crossing may be difficult during periods of heavy runoff."
