Start at the Wallace Lake outflow bridge and travers the west side of the lake along the old forest road to the north end of Wallace Lake at .6 miles. There's a short foot access trail to the lake from this point. Keep heading north west on a rooty single-track for an additional .9 miles and after crossing a couple small log bridges, you'll arrive at a primitive camping area on the east side of Jay lake, complete with outhouse. Follow trail back out the way you came in.

 Thanks for the ad, RVbldr. Could you add the trail portion? If not I can probably figure it out from your description and the various map layers.
