Gordon Lakes Trail #3386

  

Starting in older harvest units, the trail switchbacks into remnant pockets of old-growth forest. The trail parallels Falls Creek, as it slowly climbs up to Gordon Meadows.

Beyond the Meadows, you will pass under Soapgrass Mountain, a sheer basalt cliff, before arriving at two lakes containing cutthroat trout.

If you are primarily interested in accessing the lakes, you can start at the eastern trailhead.
