Hike Around Squires Lake

Washington Squires Lake Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

Take a scenic, meditative hike by the water on this well maintained trail. Wildflowers, views of the lake, and beavers in a nearby pond are main attractions.

This short, easy loop around the water makes for a peaceful afternoon excursion, or a family-friendly outing.

At the first fork in the trail, turn left to reach views of the dam, a waterfall, and the lake. Also keep an eye out for a side trail leading to Beaver Pond.

There are often wildflowers along this trail in the spring.

How to Get There

Nice Beginner

I've done the walk around the lake with my lady. It's a nice little walk. Not too much to write home about though.
