Bench and Snow Lake Trail
The trailhead is located one and a half miles east of the Reflection Lakes parking area on the south side of the road.
The trail is a succession of gradual ups and downs as it crosses a series of low ridges. The path first reaches Bench Lake after .75 mile, then continues another .5 mile to Snow Lake. Most years these lakes do not melt out until late July and the trail can be muddy until then.NOTE: Always check current trail conditions before heading out. Log footbridges frequently wash out during the winter or other conditions could be affecting the trail.
Along the Trail
The Snow Lake wilderness campsites are often late melting out and may be snow-covered until July. Permits and current trail conditions are available park-wide from wilderness information centers, ranger stations, and visitor centers. Permits required for camping. Fires are prohibited. No pets on trails. Treat water before drinking.
