Lamb Lakes

Lamb Lakes Professional Review and Guide

"Just before arrival you might say, “What a bummer.” That’s because the last mile is extremely rocky and impossible for horse travel. The trail begins on State Route 96, just before arriving at Browne Lake. Follow the West Fork trail 5.5 miles south, then drop over the ridge 1 mile west to Bummer Lake.

From the trailhead, the trail climbs 2.5 miles to the Sheep Creek Canal, then goes another 2.0 miles to a creek crossing on West Fork. After crossing the creek, the trail climbs the slopes toward the top of the ridge for about 1.0 mile. Before reaching tree line, turn right off the trail and contour 1.0 mile to Lamb Lakes. Lamb Lakes can provide prime angling. However, fishing is unpredictable. Although these lakes receive little pressure, most have a history of winterkill during long, hard winters. In the summer months, there’s an excellent elk population here. Signs of elk are everywhere, but actually seeing these animals can be quite difficult."
