A short section of the trail above Blue Lake is "Hiker Only" to minimize noise near the lake. Other users must use Jumpoff Trail #271A and Bishop Ridge Trail #272 to continue the loop. Blue Lake is at the headwaters of Blue Lake Creek. Mountain Bikers don't make noise, so use this trail as you will.
The lake was most likely created when a stream was dammed by lava flows from the Blue Lake Volcano, a cinder cone rising immediately west of the lake.
