"A moderate day hike or overnighter to Shoshone Lake and the unusual channel to Lewis Lake, which can be great fishing. This convenient loop trail goes to Shoshone Lake and follows the scenic Lewis Channel for 3.5 miles. This route follows the route clockwise, so take the trail on the left (south) side of the trailhead. The first section of the trail is flat and easy as it goes through partly burned forest for about 2.5 miles north of Lewis Lake (but mostly out of view of the lake). Then the trail turns north for about 1 mile to the Lewis Channel. It follows the picturesque channel for another 3.5 miles to Shoshone Lake." Read more
