Hoodoo Canyon/Trout Lake Trail
This is a delightful trail with some steep parts at the beginning and the end, and is about 4.7 miles in total. The views of Trout Lake, Emerald Lake and Lily Lake are spectacular and there are interesting rocks along the way. Since you can drive to both ends of the trail, it sets up for an easy one way trip if you arrange it with a friend. The north end is the Deadman Creek Trailhead, and the south end of the trail is at the Trout Lake Campground, where there are several campsites and a vault toilet. From the Trout Creek Trailhead, 2.5 miles along there will be a spur trail that heads down to beautiful Emerald Lake. It’s pretty steep in parts, but getting to the lake is worth it. There is a boat ramp at Trout Lake for non-motorized boats, and has easy access.
