Blue Lake

Blue Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Blue Lake is a lovely destination for a cool run on a hot day. The trail is easily accessible from State Route 20 and provides a nice break if you’re doing a long drive across the mountains. This is a nice, gradual, uphill run on the way in and runnable downhill on the way out.

The trail starts in a silver fir forest (A) and passes some wildflower meadows before it begins to go up. On the ascent, the surrounding scenery reveals itself. Cutthroat Peak and the craggy peaks of Whistler Mountain jut out to the west, and just above you on the trail are the cliffs of Liberty Bell and Early Winters Spires."

Great run, but the boulder field presented a problem. Anyways, the view is great and the trail was even better.
