      The Bead Lake #127 Trail is the perfect trail on a hot summer day. Located just north of Newport, WA, the trail is largely shaded by mixed conifers, including old growth cedars. Parts of the trail are close enough to the lake for a quick dip in the deep, clear water. At the 3.5 mile mark near Mosquito Creek, look uphill to find a huge old growth white pine.

      The grade is gentle, and offers hikers a spectacular view of the lake. Be on the lookout for a spur trail, #127.1, that is located at the north end of the lake. It will take you over Lodge Creek and continues along the shoreline for about another mile before it ends.

      The trail is perfect for a short backpacking trip, with four dispersed campsites along the way. They are offered on a first come, first served basis. They each have a fire pit, but no potable water, so be prepared to pack your own in.

      To get to Bead Lake from Newport: Follow U.S. Highway 2 across the Pend Oreille River into Idaho and turn north on LeClerc Road (County Road 9305). Continue on County Road 9305 for 2.8 miles and turn right onto the Bead Lake Road (County Road 3029). Travel for 6 miles, turn right on Forest Road 3215000, and continue 0.5 miles to the trailhead. The lower trailhead and parking area are located adjacent to the Bead Lake Ridge Road (NFS Road 3215000).
