Scott Lake

Scott Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Scott Lake sits at an elevation of roughly 4,800 feet on the west side of McKenzie Pass. Reflected in its waters are spectacular views of North and Middle Sister.

Popular with campers in August (and mosquitoes in July), the lake is the starting point for a running loop connecting a handful of subalpine lakes, along with a short detour to the open, wildflower-dotted summit of Scott Mountain overlooking the area in all directions. The lake itself is a worthy destination, too, so if you have the time, try camping the night before or after your run."
