Also named Sasquina Lake, for a beautiful legendary Indian maiden, this lake is seldom visited and has no fish. Going is rough to the lake, but it’s worth it. To find Summit (Sasquina) Lake, follow the Tamarack Trail 0.25 mile to an open meadow. Take a spur trail south to the base of a rocky ravine. At the top of the ravine lies Summit Lake. There are no fish in this lake, but it is a great place to be alone. If you want to see some lakes that no one ever really visits, then put on your rock-hopping boots and get ready for some rugged trekking. The lakes we are speaking of are Columbine, Gail, and Judy.
