Swift Lake is in the headwaters of Bloody Dick Creek. This approximately quarter mile spur takes you from the Park Creek Trail to Swift Lake. It is not signed or well blazed but there are sporadic blazes. Best to have a gpx track with you. It leaves the Park Creek Trail and goes up a small creek towards the lake. After going through some small meadows it ends at the outlet of Swift Lake which is very shallow and probably does not support fish. It is very scenic though. If you are riding the Park Creek Trail, take a few extra minutes and ride up to the lake and check out the view at the lake.

Access Info

Access is off the Park Creek Trail in the headwaters of Bloody Dick Creek. The junction is not signed.
