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.

Great For Hiking With Kids

Did this hike on a Saturday afternoon with 2 kids. We had a great time exploring the beaver pond and looping around the lake.

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.
