Mirror Lake #1821


The Mirror Lake Trail begins at Forest Road 206 and ends at Mirror Lake. Shortly after leaving the parking area, the trail crosses a .75 mile strip of private land; please remain on the trail in this section. The trail begins in grass and sagebrush, crosses the White River and continues through aspen and lodgepole pine as it climbs. Shortly after reaching the timber, the trail enters the National Forest and then the Flat Tops Wilderness. The trail follows Mirror Creek until it reaches Shamrock Lake and a junction with the Big Ridge Trail. Mirror Lake is .75 miles past the Big Ridge Trail junction. Both Shamrock and Mirror lakes provide good fishing for Brook Trout.
