Pamelia and Shale Lakes Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Although there is a better view of Mt. Jefferson over Jefferson Park (Trip 58), the view from Shale Lake comes in a solid second place. That alone would make a visit here worthwhile, but this hike offers many other benefits. First, there is deservedly popular Pamelia Lake, a large, lower-elevation gem that is accessible from May to November."
