Ashland Lakes Trail

Ashland Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Surrounded by sphagnum bogs and primeval forest tucked in a quiet corner behind bustling Mount Pilchuck, the Ashland Lakes are the showpiece to the Washington State’s Department of Natural Resources’ 9600-acre Mount Pilchuck Natural Resource Conservation Area (NRCA).

The placid lakes are an ideal destination for introducing children to the wonders of nature. Young hikers will especially delight in the numerous boardwalks traversing the saturated and stimulating landscape."

did this hike today, rained all day. we fished from 3 to 6 at lower ashlund and caught just one small fish off the shore by the rock slide on the far end. boardwalks were very slippery. trail was wet. not suitable for children or wimps from beaver plant lake on.
Great hike, nice trails with bridges and boardwalks all over it. we went as far as Beaver Plant Lake where there were a few camp sites complete with fire pits. We took our dog who is new to going on hikes and she loved the trail. All in all a great hike for the family.
Not too many people this weekend. Gorgeous lakes; Beaver Tail, Upper & Lower Ashland. Tried fishing them all and only had luck in Lower Ashland. Signs for Twin Falls poseted that it was closed due to winter damage. I'm not one for warnings so I went anyway. maybe a 6 out of 10 difficulty as long as you have a sense of direction and well worth the hike back. Next time I will bring as many people as I can and have a shin-dig out there. Lot's of room for camping. BRING YOUR BUG SPRAY. Netting would have been best.
