Hiking Lake Wapiki

Just a half mile off the Lemei Lake Trail is a gorgeous blue lake nestled in an old volcanic crater. Surrounded by trees, this is a sheltered refuge perfect for an overnight in Indian Heaven.

Find the junction for Lake Wapiki three miles from the Lemei Lake trailhead. A short traverse along a forested hill delivers you to the sapphire blue lake in Lemei Rock's old crater.

From the Lemei Lake trailhead, it is 3.5 miles to Lake Wapiki.
