North Erickson Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There aren’t many lakes in the High Uintas capable of yielding trout as big as North Erickson Lake does while requiring such a short, easy hike. North Erickson Lake sits at the head of Smith and Morehouse Creek in Erickson Basin. It can be reached from the Smith and Morehouse trailhead, but it is easier to start hiking from the end of Upper Setting Road in the Provo River Drainage.

From there it is less than 3.0 miles to North Erickson on a good trail. You have to go over the mountain, but it’s not very steep (as mountain passes go). Stay with the trail, or you might walk right past the lake. It is in a bit of a hole surrounded by pines. The best campsites are on the west side of the lake, just off the trail. Spring water is plentiful around the lake."
