Hike to Gillette Lake
Washington › Bonneville Trailhead
Added by Hannah Kemp
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.
