Hiking Deadwood Lakes

This un-maintained trail can be accessed from the Pacific Crest Trail. Keep your eyes and ears open for the elk that live in the area. In the fall, blue gentian and berries can be found along the over-grown trail.

The trail can be difficult to follow, so be sure to take appropriate precautions. It is usually snow-free between mid-July and mid-October, but check the current weather conditions before you go.
