Memaloose Lake Trail #515 Professional Reviews and Guides
"Memaloose Lake is a shallow gem in a scenic, mostly forested bowl beneath a rockslide on the northeast slope of South Fork Mountain. Although the hike into the lake is all uphill, it is easy enough for children, and includes plenty of things to entertain hikers of all ages. Along the way are some massive old-growth forests, a splashing creek, and plenty of seasonal berries, all ending at a pleasant lake fi lled with trout and roughskin newts."
