Lake Creek Trail Details
Lake Creek Trail forms a scenic loop when combined with Angle Peak, Devils Backbone and Four Mile Ridge Trails. It is open to hikers, stock, motorbikes and mountain bikes and is 10.6 miles in length.
Lake Creek Trail can be accessed from the Entiat River Road a few miles after it enters the Wenatchee National Forest. I am not going to lie -- this is pretty much a climb the whole way to the intersection with four-mile ridge trail at 6 miles (that is as far as I went although you can continue to take Lake Creek to an intersection with Devil's Backbone trail). However there are some great views of the Entiat Valley along the lower three miles - be sure to have seat and have a snack or water and take in the view. After about three miles the trail heads more towards Lake Chelan and enters the Alpine level at about four miles - which is very quiet and peaceful. A good loop (might take 2-3 days) is to hike Lake Creek Trail to Devils Backbone Trail, DB Trail to Four Mile Ridge Trail, and FMR trail to Lake Creek Trail.
Conditions: Looks like this trail has been mostly used by trail bikes ( I didn;t encounter a single one though). At about four miles the trail crossed a forest service road, be sure to take right up the road, after crossing lake creek (under the road) the trail will continue to your left (as of 6/19/04 this was unmarked but the trail appeared to have been excellently maintained).
