Greenwater Lakes and 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 with many fine campsites and good fishing opportunities.

Dogs will love the cool forest and soft, duff-rich trail tread. But for all that, few people (or dogs) visit, perhaps because the trail doesn’t offer sweeping panoramas. The distant views may be missing, but the routes are remarkably scenic and solitude is a high probability."
