This lake is the final destination of a challenging offshoot trail from the Heather-Maple Pass Loop trail. It is the base camp for climbers seeking to summit Black Peak, and it makes for a dramatic overnight for backpackers as well.
Map & Directions
From eastbound Highway 20, turn right at Rainy Pass; the parking area is directly off the highway. Take the trail for the Heather Maple Pass Loop trail and begin the trail counter-clockwise. The trailhead has a large parking area with restrooms and picnic tables.
