Lake La Crosse Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the wildest, most spectacular places within a park that overfl ows with incredible locations, the Lake La Crosse basin represents the very essence of Olympic National Park. Far from civilization, it’s an untrammeled place of striking natural beauty, cradling sparkling pristine lakes amid sprawling alpine meadows set against a backdrop of cloud-catching, snow-clutching jagged summits. Relish the solitude—come here in autumn and count more bears than humans. There’s no easy or short way here, making it all the more attractive and exceptional."
