Wagonwheel Lake Professional Review and Guide

"A 5.6-mile round-trip day hike from the North Fork Skokomish trailhead to Wagonwheel Lake. This trail is a laborious climb across wooded slopes with limited views, ending at a woodland lake. The trail begins by running north through a dry forest of young Douglas fir underlain by a dense mat of Oregon grape.

It soon crosses the moist bottom of a side valley and begins the long ascent by switchbacking up the steep hillside. When it finally reaches the top of a finger ridge, the grade eases a bit before becoming even steeper as it follows the ridgeline upward. There are several overlooks as the path alternates between doghair stands of young hemlocks and open groves of more mature trees."

A very nice and strenuous day hike to a small blue lake. Not for weak legs.
