The Punchbowl Lake trail is 1.0 miles long. The trail begins with boardwalk and natural tread on a easy grade but it quickly changes and becomes quite steep. There are many switchbacks and wet, rocky areas. At the halfway point the trail branches off to overlook a breathtaking waterfall. The trail ends at Punchbowl Lake where you will find a three sided shelter and an outhouse.
