Squaw Basin Professional Review and Guide

"A compass is a must in this heavily timbered area. It’s easy to get headed in the wrong direction as the trails twist, turn, intersect, and sometimes disappear in Squaw Basin. Getting into the area is not a problem, but finding your way around Squaw Basin can be confusing. Keep your map and compass handy, and keep your group together.

From Rock Creek trailhead the trail climbs up the hill to the west and then passes by the Upper Stillwater Dam approximately 0.3 mile from the trailhead. The trail then parallels the Upper Stillwater Reservoir for 1.7 miles. The trail then follows Rock Creek for 0.8 mile until meeting the junction of the West Fork Rock Creek Trail. Continue up the Rock Creek Drainage. After 1.0 mile, the trail meets the trail from Squaw Basin. It’s 3.5 miles to the junction with the trail from Rudolph Lake. Stay left (north). There will be another junction with the trail coming down East Fork. Stay right (east) here. It’s 3.0 miles to Squaw Lake in the middle of Squaw Basin. Squaw Lake is a popular camping location, featuring plenty of spring water and horse pasture."
