Bobby Lake Trail #3663

This easy walking trail wanders through park-like stands of mountain hemlock. It joins the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail for about 500 feet before it turns off to the right, heading down to Bobby Lake. Grades are easy. The relatively short distance and easy grades makes this an ideal trail for small children. The lake offers fishing, swimming, and several good campsites. The trail continues along the north shore of the lake and into the Deschutes National Forest, coming out on a forest road in the Davis Lake area.
