Gorgeous secluded lake on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge.
To begin the trail go towards the skinny path, not the gravel road. Soon after you'll see a sign for both the lake and Bridge of the Gods. This is a very, very small portion of the Pacific Crest Trail; there are trail markers everywhere. You'll know if you have strayed away if you stop seeing them. This trip was an easy 5 1/2ish miles in and out.
The trailhead is also known as Tamanous Trailhead. Northwest Forest Passes are honored here, however if you don't have a pass there is a 5 dollar fee.
I went there on a Saturday afternoon and my group and I only saw one person. Great quiet hike.
