Betty Lake Trail #3664

Area Status: Temporarily Closed

From Waldo road, Betty Lake is easily reached in a few minutes. From here the trail follows easy grades past several other lovely, small lakes tucked in a lush forest setting, and ends at the Waldo Lake Trail.

There are several good campsites along Betty Lake, see comments. The short distance into this lake makes it a popular spot for those interested in carrying a lightweight fishing boat and camping gear.
