Hiking Beth Lake

This lakeside trail begins in Beaver Lake Campground and travels 1.9 flat miles to Beth Lake, offering opportunities to view fish and waterfowl including the Common Loon.

From the trailhead near campsite 4 in the Beaver Lake campground, look for a sign about 40 feet off the road, near a small stream.

From the sign, take off on a trail contouring the hillside just above Beaver Lake. Continuing on to the left, you'll pass along the back side of the lake, then pass through Beth Lake Campground.

Continuing on, arrive at a small earthen dam near the north end boat launch. Cross the dam and follow the trail around to the far side of Beth Lake.
