Crater Lakes

Crater Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"Hike this 8.4-mile out-and-back day trip or backpack to a scenic lake basin in the Sawtooth Range east of Lake Chelan in the Okanogan National Forest.

The lake offers a good base camp for trout fishing, or for further roaming of the lakes and peaks in this rugged and lesser-known range. Washington’s backcountry areas are wonderlands of remote valleys, many filled with alpine lakes and tarns. Nearest town: Twisp, WA. Other trail users: Equestrians, motorcycles. Canine compatibility: Dog friendly."
