The Separation Lake Trail is located within the Three Sisters Wilderness. The trail accesses Separation Lake (keep an eye out for the junction and a bridge that crosses the creek). The trail continues past the lake and connects with Horse Creek Trail No. 3514.
From McKenzie River Ranger Station, drive east on Highway 126 about ¼ mile to Foley Road No. 2643. Take Road 2643 about 8-1/2 miles to Road 480. Continue driving for about 2 miles to the trailhead at the end of the road.
Trail No. 3524, Separation Creek Trail, which continues on past the trail junction to Separation Lake, is permanently closed due to heavy tree blow down.
