Swimming Hole

Short fairly level hike to this popular scenic swimming hole!

There is plenty of parking here with large pull-offs on both sides of the road. The trail is a wide old road. Soon after you sign the register you will pass a gate and continue. This is actually a snowmobile trail in winter as well if you enjoy snowmobiling.

At about the half way mark you will cross a small stream and pass by many small cascades. This area is known to be wet.

At 0.9 miles you will reach the lake. There is usually a rope tied to the tree if you want to swing and jump in to cool off. You can also continue along the trail as it skirts along the lakes edge where you can jump in from the rocks.

The area is also known as a popular spot for bouldering.

Nine Corner Lake

Easy enough hike to a gorgeous lake. If feeling more adventurous, there is the option to swim out to the large rock in the lake, which is easy enough to climb into!
