Boulder Lake Trail #105


Boulder Lake

Boulder Lake is a popular destination for anglers.  To get to the trail, park your car below Boulder Meadows Reservoir; the trail goes along the north side of Boulder Meadows Reservoir (elevation 6269').  The trail is just over 2 miles long with an elevation gain of about 700'.  The trail climbs slowly until just before the lake where you follow a few steep switchbacks along a granite rock face. This trailhead provides access to several other good hiking areas for hikers planning an overnight trip; Anderson, Maloney, Summit, Rapid, Fogg, and the Kennally Lakes can be accessed from the Boulder Lake Trail.
