Greenwater–Echo Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Lush old-growth forest; dark, mysterious forest lakes; and a wonderful chance to meet and see wildlife await hikers here. The trail sticks to a deeply forested river valley, where it passes a wonderfully clear, cool lake—Green-water—with good ?shing. The route eventually reaches Echo Lake in a long 7 miles, but these miles ?y by as you stride through the
cool forest.

Footsore hikers will love the soft, duff-rich trail tread, and Echo itself is a wonderful place to rest and relax before hiking back down the pretty trail. But for all that, few people visit, perhaps because the trail doesn’t offer sweeping panoramas. The distant views may be missing, but the route is remarkably scenic, and solitude is a high probability."
