Blue Lake

Blue Lake

Moderate - Access from the top of Bridal Veil Falls. Approximately 4 hours round trip covering 5 1/4 miles with an elevation gain of 2,000 feet. This is a spectacular wildflower hike that ends above the tree line at the lake. 

From the top of the falls, stay on the road and pass a tin-roofed shed where the road switches upward, sharply to the left, away from the creek. Blue Lake is an hour from this shed. Continue walking on the main road, when you come to a “Y”, take the left toward the pointed pyramid-shaped mountain in the skyline. Walk up a rocky road beside a sometimes wet, dark rock wall to another “Y”. Go right, toward the three-needled pyramid-shaped peak ahead.
