Corrigan Lake Trail #3654

Corrigan Lake Trail is another feeder trail into the Diamond Peak Wilderness and connects with the Peaks main west-side, north/south route, the Diamond Peak Trail.

The trail begins with several switchbacks at an easy climb. The trail climbs up through an alpine forest of mountain hemlock, silver, noble and grand firs. As the climb continues, the trail crosses a ridge with views of both Diamond Peak and Kalapuya Ridge.

About 1.5 miles up the trail is a short spur trail on the right, which leads to Corrigan Lake (the spur is not signed).

Corrigan Lake has offers a fantastic view of Diamond Peak from its western shoreline. This lake has excellent fishing.
