McGath Lake Trail

McGath Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This challenging trail has something for everyone: a technically difficult drive, panoramic views, and a secluded lake at the end. Special Attractions: Challenging 4WD trail through spectacular scenery; Backcountry camping and fishing at McGath Lake; Aspen viewing in fall. This trail is for experienced four-wheel drivers only.

It is potentially dangerous, with large rocks, ruts, or terraces that may need to be negotiated. It may also have stream crossings at least 18 inches deep, involve rapid currents, unstable stream bottoms, or difficult access; steep slopes, loose surfaces, and narrow clearances; or very narrow sections of shelf road with steep drop-offs and potentially challenging road surfaces."
