Hero: Sureshot Lakes
small-sr Icon
Sureshot Lakes is an easy trail with two beautiful alpine lakes around the halfway point. The lower lake is only accessible via a very short optional spur off the main trail, but the access is a steep, washed-out climb. A locker is highly recommended to get up this hill safely. If you can make it up this hill, you will likely have the lower lake to yourself. There are two campsites on the lower lake. The main trail continues higher past the upper lake, where the majority of the campsites are. The area near the peninsula on the upper lake has several dozen campsites, some vehicle accessible and some not, as well as a pit toilet. Over summer holiday weekends, the upper campsites will be packed due to the easy access. Most campsites have rock fire rings. The trail continues up the ridge past the lakes and eventually dead ends at a gate, where the rest of the road is only accessible to ATVs and smaller vehicles. The most difficult part of this trail is the optional access climb to the lower lake, but the most difficult required part is a small rutted section near the campsites at the upper lake. The trail is mostly packed dirt with small rocks. Wildlife can sometimes be seen in the area, and the lakes are good for fishing.
