Overview

At the southern border of the Castle Peak Wilderness, Blue Lake 4WD trail passes through low wetlands and creek crossings on its way to scenic Blue Lake. Lower in altitude and more tree-covered than neighboring trails, Blue Lake can be a welcome respite from the summer heat. The less traveled trail makes the few established campsites feel more secluded. The lake itself is accessible via a short hike from the end of the trail.
