Distance: 2 miles round trip with amazing views of the valley if you hike above the lake. There are campsites around the lake with streams nearby. This is a great spot for night photography, fishing, and camping.

Blue Lake is a great spot to spend a night next to the lake but is also the perfect escape if you're looking to get away for just the day. The stars at night are worth the trip alone, as it's far away from light pollution. It gets a little windy sometimes but there is plenty of cover and trees to take shelter if need be.

You first park at the trailhead off of Cabarton Road. You then descend into the bowl of a valley and blue lake is right in the center. Small lake but peaceful and serene.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Quick Hike With A Nice View

This is a family friendly hike. It's only about a mile in which makes it quick to get to the lake. Lots of fish so bring a pole!

Great for An Quick Overnight Stay

It's the perfect place to get away from the craziness of the city life!
