Perch Lake Trail

Area Status: Open

Located just west of Whisker Lake Wilderness, this trail circles picturesque Perch Lake. If you're interested in a secluded camping experience, this trail also passes five walk-in campsites with tent pads, tables, fire rings, and wilderness-style toilets. Or if you'd like to try fishing, the lake is stocked with bluegills and bass. Other trails in the area include the Lauterman trail and the Assessor's Interpretive trail.
