Pyramid Lake Trail

Pyramid Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Do this hike not for the destination, but for the journey. “Lake” is an overstatement. Pond, maybe, but Pyramid Puddle is more like it. Still, this easily accessible trail gets a fair amount of traffic, as it makes for a good spring conditioner or late-fall snow prober.

And while Pyramid Lake is tiny, some of the trees along the way are anything but small. The real allure of this trail is the impressive old-growth forest it traverses, compensating for any lake letdown."

Deceiving title for this hike. The lake at the top is more of a pond with limited shore. The hike up wasn't long, and had a few great photo-ops from the small stream and nice mossy mini waterfalls. All up hill from the get go, it's a good quick workout, but limited in the payoff at the end
