Overview

Long, hard-core trail across mountain ridge.

Contrary to what its name implies, Swamp Lake Trail is a high-elevation mountain route climbing over 9,500 feet at one point. Although much of the trail is heavily forested, the scenery is very impressive from high vistas along the route. You pass several excellent fishing lakes, although some require short hikes. The trail can be driven in a day but most people stop and camp along the way. A real challenge for green-sticker vehicles.
