Bagley Lakes Trail #684.1
The Bagley Lakes Trail travels .75 mile one-way along the eastern shore of Bagley Lake. Table Mountain and Mt. Herman tower above this family-friendly lakeshore hike. Waterfalls, wildflowers and spectacular autumn colors grace a landscape shaped by volcanoes and glaciers. Sandpipers and water ouzels are just two of the bird species frequently you can see by this lake. To form a two-mile loop, the trail can link with Chain Lakes Trail or the Wild Goose Trail, which follows the bench above the lake.
